Wowza...was this a fun color combination to use. I have only Going Gray cs scraps, so I had to be careful with layout. (Those scraps are only strips of cs, too.) I turned to page 15 of the Spring/Summer 2008 SU! catalog for this layout. I had in mind that this giraffe would be great for a little boy's birthday, so the layout needed to be clean and simple.
My card base is Yo Yo Yellow stamped with the stars from the Background Basics set in Yo Yo Yellow ink. The next layer is Basic Gray cs with two of the edges distressed. I grabbed a strip of Going Gray cs, trimmed an edge with my scallop scissors, distressed the opposite edge and glue it down. I stamped the HB sentiment onto Whisper White cs with Going Gray ink, trimmed it and adhered it with a Dimensional. Lastly, I stamped the giraffe with Yo Yo Yellow onto Whisper White cs, punched to holes and tied on a scrap of ribbon.
I think it's pretty cute. How about you? TFL - Regina
