You Make Me Smile - PDCC#132

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!  Hope you are enjoying your Saturday.  We have a beautiful day here on the northcoast our son came over and helped do some major yardwork with his dad now that the rains have taken a hiatus for a while.  We have a big barbecue planned in our backyard in a couple of weeks for all the kids in our church that are graduating from the various schools in June.  The backyard really needed some TLC and today was a good start.  We will have to finish it up in the next couple of weekends.

In the meantime.... I thought I'd share a card that I've CASE'd from a StampTV video tutorial that Gina shared yesterday called One in a Million Card Sketch. I've changed it just a little bit with color, no pattern paper, I've embossed the yellow card stock and the size is different, too.   This is also to participate in the PLAY DATE CAFE COLOR CHALLENGE #132
Here's the challenge:
Black...White...and a splash of mustard Yellow - The 'splash' MUST be some shade of yellow all other colors will be deleted.
I was inspired by the photograph so my 'black' has a lot of white 'added' to it to make it more of a light black (aka gray)!  Okay, I'll probably have to make another one to qualify....


I've added the last two pics to show what a difference just a little touch of color can make.  I've added the black Viva Pearl Pen to each of the flower centers shown on this last photo.  Just that simple little touch adds interest, dimension and texture to the card focal point.

Ingredients: Gina K Design Stamps (One in a Million);Memento Tuxedo Black ink;  Paper: Bazzill card stock, Neenah bright white card stock; Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scallop Circle and Standard Circle; American Crafts ribbon; Copic Markers: Y26, Y35, W5; Viva Pearl Pen; Polka Dots Embossing folder and Cuttlebug, ProvoCraft.

Thanks for visiting!!
