TGIF Challenge

This week over at #tgif the colour challenge this week is Basic Gray, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight. Here is what I made.

I wanted to make a more masculine card, hard for someone who automatically reaches for sequin and butterflies lol. 

I used Basic Gray ink with a new stamp from My Favorite Things, Cheesecloth. I love this stamp and I think like all the other background stamps from MFT it will be versatile and be well used. 

I stamped my Typewriter Text stamp, MFT, in Pool Party and die cut this using a Die-namics Pierced Tag die.  I also die cut a Daffodil Delight circle using a Dienamics Zig Zag Circle die.   Foam Dimentionals were added to this to create layering. 

I used the Hello You die set to make the 'happy' and used black Bazzill card stock for this.  I then used my Rotary stamp from Stampin' Up! to stamp 'birthday' and layered this with white card to make the banners.  All these were layered together to create the card.  I found it difficult not to add a butterfly but I still had to add some embellishments so chose sequin from Teresa Collins Urban Market collection in grey and black and white.

I hope you have enjoyed this card. Why not head over to the  and check out other cards using this colour combo. 

See you tomorrow for another card. Take care of you.
