This is not a layout I would have typically used, but it came together amazingly fast! MaryJo's sketch is actually a square card, but I rarely do squares. Instead, I changed it into the standard card size. I had this brand new stamp set sitting on my desktop....you see, my hubby went golfing all last week in Myrtle Beach, so it only seemed fair that I purchase a few goodies for myself, don't you think?!! LOL So, that's how I came by this set! And it's a beauty.....there's tons of lovely creations floating around in cyberland with this set, so it became a "necessity!!"
I also remember seeing a gray and yellow combo challenge a month or so ago, so decided to try it for myself.....this card features Going Gray, Basic Gray, Summer Sun and Whisper White.....again, this was stepping out of my comfort zone, but I really like the finished card....what do you think?
Can't wait to see what the others have come up with....it's always so much fun to check out MJ's site to see. You can click here to see the original sketch and begin your tour!

These are definitely always the most difficult cards to make.....and send! Unfortunately, I needed to send a couple of them recently and this simple card is what I came up with....since I'm pleased with the simple, but pretty result, I thought I'd share. It's really a no-layer card, colored with markers....no special technique!...., has a touch of ribbon and a torn, sponged edge.....the strip of Certainly Celery is actually adhered to the part of the card with the saying.
So, that's my quick post for today, and here's the info:
Stamps: Embrace Life, Thoughts & Prayers
Inks: Basic Gray, Certainly Celery (for sponging)
CS: Whisper White, Certainly Celery
Markers: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery
Misc: Certainly Celery Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon, Rectangle Hand-Held Punch*, Sponge
