Way out of my comfort zone!!!

The very lovely and talented Edna is part of the Colour Create Design Team and I've been meaning to join in their challenges for ages but always seem to miss the deadline! So, trust me to find time to join in on the challenge that I would find most tricky! What a numpty. So the challenge is grey, yellow, black and white - this is a big challenge when you only have 2 yellow copics and NO yellow papers!! Nothing like making life hard for yourself, is there?
I'm still not sure about this card but I'm really glad I gave it a go; it made me much braver when I made my Lili's Little Fairies DT card today (wait till you see it - I practically threw the entire contents of my embellishment box at it!!).

This image is another cutie from Krista Smith called 'hand me downs'. The papers are from Papermania - the monochrome capsule collection and the postcard stamp is also Papermania (Portobello Road collection). The flowers, lace and cheesecloth are all from WOC. The doily (I can't help myself) is the French Pastry Doily Die from Cheery Lynn (from Joanna Sheen's treacherously wobbly shelves). The hat pins are by Creative Expressions bought from Sam Poole.

All in all I'm glad I gave this colourway a whirl. It doesn't help that I don't like yellow and the only pens I had were of the 'in yer face yellow' variety!!

Anyhoo, I'm going to try to link this up to the challenge. Fingers crossed. Colour Create Challenge - Yellow, Grey, Black and White

Wasn't NCIS good last night? It made me cry!! Wishing you a fabulous weekend, Jayne x

For only having two yellow pens Jayne you have created a masterpiece. Love the papers and the layering and all the embellies. Smashing card!
