HELLO YOYO YELLOW

I really should be cleaning house and setting up for tonight's weSTAMP meeting (we're swapping tonight so watch for a post with our swap cards within the next day or so). I started this card late last night, and just couldn't move on to other things until I finished it and posted it.

I used two of my favorite challenges to create this card ... 1) Stacey's Jewelry Color Inspiration Challenge #43 of YoYo Yellow, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, and Very Vanilla. I can't tell you the last time I even touched YoYo Yellow! I'm
a sucker for an unusual color combo so this was right up my alley! ... and 2) this awesome Mojo Monday Sketch #93.

This stamp set, Pretty Amazing, is retiring today. It has always been one of my favorites, and I can't believe how short lived it was. Click HERE to see other cards I've created using this stamp set.

TOMORROW afternoon, I will be placing a Stampin' Up! order for the first round of Designer Paper and Ribbon Shares! Don't miss out !!!!

Oh my goodness, Nancy! This is a delicious card! Your take on the colors and mojo sketch ARE amazing! Loving that peek of yoyo yellow with the scalloped edge punch! Thanks for sharing your creation for the JCI43!

Marie said...

Fabulous balance of the colors in the challenge Nancy! I love your card!!

Katie Ann Brooks said...

Great job on both challenges! I love that you flipped the mojo sketch! So simple, but I feel like I always center stuff to the right, it is a nice change to have it to the left!

my oh my! NEVER thought i'd see yo yo yellow paired with anything other than bold brights and have it work! brilliant work, as always, and i like how you flipped the sketch too.

are you submitting any of your work for publication? you should...it's consistently fantastic.
