Colour Create #91 - Yellow, Grey, Black and White

Hard to believe that another fortnight has passed and its time for the latest challenge over at Colour Create - #91 chosen by Mina - Yellow, Grey, Black and White with the optional extra of adding flowers to your creation. Here is this week's inspiration picture:

1 March - Challenge 91 - Mina - Yellow, grey, black and white
Another challenging set of colours but after tackling them I have to say that this is now one of my favourite colour combos! 
Here is my card:

I used some Grid cardstock to create my background with the Guidelines II stamp set., inking up my stamps using Smokey Shadow ink and Lemon Drops ink. My main image was stamped in Smokey Shadow ink using images from Blooming Button Bits. The yellow flowers were stamped in Lemon Drops ink using a flower image from an old Saleabration set from Stampin' Up called Bliss. The flowers were popped up on dimensionals and some tiny black pearls added to their centres. I stamped my sentiment from PTI's anniversary set Round and Round in Smokey Shadow ink and then die cut it with a tag die. The matting for the main image was edged with my Apron Lace border punch and the card was finished off with some black ribbon and a Lemon Zest button.

On the inside, I used another sentiment from Round and Round stamped over the flower image from Bliss. To finish off a strip of black pearls was added along the bottom.

The girls on the team have all done an amazing job with these colours so go have a look over at the Colour Create blog!
