It's Not All Black and White

Do You Have Your Sunglasses?

Because you may need them if you're planning on looking at today's card!

A quick little background: I started stamping at a Stampin' Up! party almost SEVEN years ago. Sometime shortly after that I bought a variety pack of bold bright card stock. Then a full pack of YoYo Yellow. Let me put it to you this way, AFTER making this card, I've still never even opened the full pack of YoYo Yellow. It is NOT my go-to color.

But I LOVE this card! Go figure. It all started with the American Crafts Max layered embellishment. I stamped the polka dots in Pink Passion on, yep, YoYo Yellow to match. The sentiment is Basic Gray and the scallops, Taken with Teal. Super fast. Super fun. Super Summery.

Uses Fall-To Layout #47, Polka Dot Basics, and Beautiful Blooms.

Oh, my gosh! I think you just discovered the secret to using Yo Yo Yellow -- stamp it with Pink Passion! I love it! Really...this card is darling!

LOL yeah, Yo Yo Yellow isn't a colour I reach for...maybe on a colour challenge day? haha!

You have made it look pretty here though!! The dots add so much and that flower is awesome girl!

Wowzer! Bright is right, but I like seeing something so bright and cheerful after all the dreary weather we've been having in my neck of the woods. Like the card.
