A New Favorite Color Combination


The Card Concept #11 is a color challenge to use black, yellow, grey, and white. This has become a favorite color combination of mine lately, so playing along with this challenge was fun! I went for a clean & layered design, using a Hero Arts chevron embossing folder on some daffodil cardstock, and a snippet of a soft yellow plaid dsp along with some light grey cardstock. The card base is a textured black. The sentiment is by Penny Black, and I added a few black gems, along with 1 yellow gemstone to dot the "i." The sentiment was put on  SB petite ovals, and I pierced the scallops for fun. The twine is from Lawn Fawn and now I have another birthday card added to my stash.

I'm also entering this into the Snippets Playground #126.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great Wednesday!

I can see why you like this color combo, it is beautiful. Love the embossing and textured paper together and your piercing looks great. I really like the gem for dotting the "i" as well as the other gems. Love it, Carol.

A very sophisticated & chic color combo here. Am so loving that chevron embossing and the way you used it as a border with all the other pretty elements on this card. Gorgeous. I think you hit a home run with your new fav colors :-) TFS & Hugs

I am loving this color combo too Carol! So pretty together and so chic! I love that embossed chevron paper and love how you cut it. The oval is so perfect for a sentiment. Your cute little dots look great and I love the little yellow one on the birthday. Hugs, Brenda
