Yellow and Gray ...

Hi Everybody,

A few days ago ...  while I was showing you cards in my Yellow mood  ... someone said that they would like to see a card in Yellow and Gray

And so I got to work and made three using that color scheme.

This is the first of those cards and I must say that everyone I have shown this card to really likes the look too

The base card had been created with 5x7 Matting Basics A and B and layered  in gray and yellow

The Silver layer  is  Mystical Embrace  and this is a die cut that will cover most of the front of your 5x7 card

To the top of that I have layered  Royal Circle   and used #2 and #3 (#1 being the smallest)

The organza ribbon has been double wrapped around the layers and then everything added with foam tape to give dimension

The pearl flourish is from  Want2Scrap  and adds a real touch of luxury to the sentiment. The sentiment itself was Free with a magazine and it is proving to be such a useful one.

My flowers are a mixture of Yellow and White Roses, Carnations and Chrysanthemums and I must admit I really do like this card ... and I hope you do too

The sentiment is a stamp that was free with my magazine subscription to Simply Cards and Papercrafts  and is such a useful phrase to have

For Sale:

I have added more dies for sale to the page and you need to click the photo under the FOR SALE banner in the side bar to your right


More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  33. Hi Christina, beautiful card, I love the colours, we do get stuck in our ways with the colours we like, so it's good to see the different colour combinations you use and they are always so beautiful, it gives us the push we sometimes need to try something different, many thanks.
