Not the One

Stamps: Upsy Daisy, Fresh Cuts
Card Stock: Yo Yo Yellow, Whisper White, Urban Oasis
Ink: Basic Gray
Accessories: Top Note Die, Styled Silver Hardware, Paper Piercer & Template, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Small Oval punch, Glue Dots

This isn't the card I originally had in mind when I pulled out my stamps and papers to create, but that's okay. It's good to change things up once and a while...and my Yo Yo Yellow seems to get neglected quite a bit. I like it with the Basic Gray, though...and seem to remember this color challenge a while back. Anyhow...this is a SU only card for a change.

Thanks for your visit!!

Beautiful and striking. I also forget to use YoYo and I love it with black. You used one of my favorite images for your card. Love that set.

I don't know...I would really have to be out of a lot of cardstock to pull out Yo Yo Yellow! This looks super neat...I would have never thought of using this stamp in these colors!

I've always liked a yellow and gray combo. You've combined just the right amounts of each to make this card perfect! I really like the way you did the ribbon and brad. Just gorgeous, Rose Ann!

You did a fabulous job on this Rose Ann! I am in love with that Top Note label--been seeing it on so many cards and I just LOVE it! Ya know, I never use my Yoyo Yellow, but if I did, I would HAVE to pair it with black/grey! Looks great together!

I got my birthday card in the mail TODAY! Thank you so much! You are just the sweetest for remembering and thoughtful to send a card...I ♥ those little 3x3s :) Have a great week!
