I think I must be feeling somewhat nostalgic about some of the retiring things at Stampin' Up! because for this card I dug very deep into my stash. The color challenge this week at Our Creative Corner was to use Yellow, Kraft, and White or Ivory. Well, the first yellows that came to mind were So Saffron and Daffodil Delight but I thought they didn't look so good together so I had to come up with Plan B. And Plan B involved one of the first InColors: Marigold Morning.
The bottom layer here is Marigold Morning, a color that has not seen the light of day in my house in years! And in a strange twist of fate, I used some More Mustard brads which match freakishly well with the cardstock. (If you haven't seen these colors in real life, they really aren't all that close. I would say the tone is the same, but the color is off a few shades). The top layer incorporates some So Saffron cardstock and DSP from Sweet Pea.
I wrapped these layers with some linen thread and finished it off with a Crumb Cake button. The adorable sentiment is Verve. My layout is the latest retro sketch and I am also cautiously going to enter this into the yellow challenge at Less is More but I'm not sure that it's got the "white space" they're looking for. Hopefully it passes muster!
Well, this morning I'm off to the garden to dig up some plants to bring to a plant sale where I'm volunteering. I should have done this yesterday, but the weather wasn't great so I opted to run some errands and spend some time in my craft room. Duty calls!
Thanks for stopping by!
