Yellow & Gray Friends


I'm not sure folks really want to hear all the details on how some of my cards come to life. I have a very non-linear train of thought and sometimes it's hard to follow along. I saw this lovely color inspiration challenge on Deb's Paper, Ink, Scissors, & Stamps blog and thought it was a great color combination. Then I was thinking about the current 2 Sketches 4 You sketch and wanted to do something with words, but then I printed the Hero Arts digital image too large. So somehow, the card turned out like it is- which is very similar to Deb's DT card... I didn't indeed it to be that way. Will have to try another version for the sketch challenge... but in the mean time here's a very CAS Friends card. Its for the Stamp Simply color challenge. And since it's got a quote about friends it'll work well for the Simon Says Stamps friends challenge. And while hunting for the right shade of grey I decided to recycle the cardboard that came in the card stock packet which works for the Cute Card Thursday recycle challenge. Hope the lovely folks at Cute Card Thursday don't get sick of me this week, such a great challenge!

Materials: Hero Arts digital friends sentiment, yellow card stock from Spotlight, Cardboard from card stock packet, Fiskars scallop rotary cutter

I can really see your inspiration in this card, and the idea and execution are fantastic. I really like it when I can read words of text backgrounds too, for some reason.
