Just Because

MFTWSC163
The challenges at MFT & Dynamic Duos inspired my card & I used MFT stamps, dies & felt.  I stamped the card front with Distressed Diamonds & didn't press down evenly to get a more distressed look. The white panel is white embossed with another image from Distressed Diamonds. The Lemon Drop felt flower is cut with the Layered Rose die & the center & leaves are black cardstock cut with Prima Donna Petals.  The black flag is cut with Fishtail Flags. Glad to have another card ready to surprise a blogging friend.  Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

  10. Hello Greta,
    My goodness this palette hits you full on... SMACK!!!
    You have chosen two power hues that contradict each other; Yellow relates a luminous energy, whereas Black has a dark heavy and bold feel. It shouts 'here I am' it only works because you had the insight to tone down the effect with the White embossing panel, how very clever of you, this is a fabulous card that would cheer up any ones day.
