Anything but that.....



Over at 365 cards, the challenge is to use a color that we don't like using. I generally shy away from the gray/yellow/white combination. I made this card last night and it was torturous. The yellow is embossed on vellum with another version of the image under the raised up die cut so it looks a little like a hollogram. The word 'friend' is stamped in gray. Everything on this card is Close to My Heart. I actually really, really like how this card turned out.

I have to tell you, I actually adore yellow and grey together :)

This is so beautiful! I used the same color combination, but mine doesn't look nearly this good!

this card is just wonderful! Of course I adore grey and yellow, so this is such a great card for me to look at. But its so simple and modern, just like the color combo. Great job!

Gorgeous! I love that you kept it simple so the colors would take center stage (even though you may not like them, they do make a striking combo). :)
