This card was for the Going Gray, Basic Gray and YoYo Yellow challenge. It took sooo long to do, and I hated it by the time it was done! After sleeping on it, I've decided to get my nerve up and upload it after all. I'm still new at this...
I don't have gray ink, so I used a Zig marker in Steel Gray to stamp the image. (It stained my rubber!!!) Used the Linen BG stamp on the light gray cardstock to give it some texture. Sponged YoYo Yellow around the elephant and sentiment. I ended up with flowers in the corners because I originally put eyelets there, and they looked awful. Pulled them out, and punched flowers to get rid of the holes the eyelets had left.

WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE, IT'S ADORABLE. THE IMAGE IS CUTE, THE COLORS ARE NICE, THE LAYOUT IS TERRIFIC AND ALL YOUR SCALLOP DO-DADS JUST ENHANCE EVERYTHING ELSE. YOUR FLOWER PUNCHES ARE CUTE THE RIBBON IS TERRIFIC. I'D SAY THIS IS AN ALL AROUND PERFECT CARD.
