Out of my comfort zone

Hello! How are you all? I'm fine. It was my first "real" day back at work after summer holidays and it wasn't too bad. Surprisingly I didn't even have problems getting up in the morning. Who would have thought?! O.o

Today I want to show you the card I made over the weekend. I chose colours that I wouldn't normally choose. I mean, I used black! And bright green. Definitely not the colours you would see on my cards often. I combined these colours with pastel yellow. And I was surprised that I actually liked this colour combination. I didn't use any DP not any cute images on my card. Strange, huh? I did use my favourite quote stamp though. Are you curious how this card turned out? Ok then, let me show it to you. Tadaaam!

As I said, I didn't use any dp. For my background I just used a pastel yellow paper, over which I stamped with Stampabilities' Faded text background stamp. And the yellow paper on the left is embossed with Cuttlebug Fleur de lis embossing folder. I also used my border punch and some ribbon from my stash. And the stamp is from Cloud 9 design.

I hope you like my today's card and that it'll inspire you to do/try something you don't usually do on your craft projects.
