Classy Colors

I don't use a lot of yellow, but there are situations where I love it.  The current DeNami color challenge HERE is an example--black, yellow, white & charcoal.  Those of you who know me aren't surprised I chose to make a card in the elegant/classy category--my favorite.  The stamps are both by DeNami.  I made the background by stamping the image in Memento Gray Flannel on white cs & then sponged it with the same ink.  I used a Making Memories distress tool for the edges of both panels.  I love using my Sew Easy mat with the Tim Holtz Design Ruler & a push pin to make evenly spaced holes.  This is my first time to use the variegated floss for a little different effect.  Another first is to sponge the ink on the diecut while the die is in place--been wanting to do that & it was just what I needed here.  I used a gray COPIC to make the dots on the sentiment piece & a yellow COPIC to make my white pearls match the satin ribbon.  The stitched panels & the sentiment are popped up.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend & thanks for coming by my blog.
