Make it a Happy Day

Good morning from a cold and wet UK
The new challenge at Papercraft Star begins today which is to use 
Grey and Yellow on your cards or projects ...
This is the lovely inspiration photo 


Oh to have a room like this ... I'd invite you all over for tea!

So I mention to you in This post ... that today's card would be very similar ... even though it was made weeks ago for a friends' birthday ... And though Grey and yellow would not normally be my 'go to' colours, I just love them together! So thanks to Jan for this challenge


How I love banners ... 
This was created using digital papers by Agnes Biro and Jen Allyson


... And do you see that I threaded my machine with silver thread? I really like the effect if gives to the card ... I used a punch for those little hearts and made use of the positive and the negative


The sentiment is also a digital by Deena Rutter (A kind word) .. a few rhinestones, a rose and some burlap threads complete the card ...

Usually I only make one of a kind when it comes to cards (except for Christmas cards ... when I may do a few similar)... but my SIL came over and saw this and wanted one the same to send to her friend ... so I made another one ... and I'm still not tired of these colours ...

Please take a moment to pop over to the blog and check out the lovely creations from the rest of the DT and get out your greys and yellows and come and join us this week.

In case you wonder where I get these digitals from Here is the link for you ...

Have a beautiful day ... Thanks for visiting me and stay safe

Yes, and the more you work with banners, the more I want to try it, too! A fabulous card.

Stella said...

There is something subtle in a combo of grey and yellow and the way you worked with them is chic. Your card is trendy by the use of banners ( which I LOVE) and that rose; sigh....Your stitching is a-ma-zing!
