Yellow and grey elegance

Hello! Phew, it's finally weekend. This week was very hectic and I am very happy it's over. I've decided to do absolutely nothing today (nothing that I wouldn't like). I will just relax and take it easy. I'm currently working on one mini album and I think I'll play with it for a little. Once it's done I will show you the pictures (though knowing how slow I am at making these things it might take another week or two lol).

In the meantime, I want to show you a card I made the other day. Once for a change I didn't use any cute image on it and I played with colour combination I don't use often. However, I must admit I'm quite happy with how this card turned out. I hope you will like it too!


I used pastel yellow and white cardstock and some grey paper from my stash. As you can see I did quite some embossing on this card. For the yellow cardstock I used Cuttlebug Swiss dots EF and for the white cardstock I used Cottage floral EF. Once the white piece of cardstock was embissed, I used TH weathered wood DI to ink the raised parts. The doily is from my stash. The circles were cut with my SB dies. On the white circle I stamped with Faded text background stamp from Stampabilities. Thebutterfly is MS punch and the flower is TH die. I inked the flower with TH weathered wood DI. I used a bigger crystal for the center of my flower and some small crystals to create a swirl. I also used my border punch.

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Mojo Monday: Sketch
Pink Gem: Emboss it
Sparkles: Die cuts and flowers
Stampin' for the weekend: Something girly
Cute cards Thursday: Diamonds are forever
Divas by design: Make it girly

Before I go, I would also like to tell you about the snow sale that is currently going on at Crafty ribbons. You can get their gorgeous ribbons up to 75% off. Now, if this isn't a good deal, I don't know what it is. Hop here to see the ribbons that are on sale.
