Five hours left...

lots of time. Not last minute at all. To be fair (hah!) I finished my card yesterday, and then spaced out forgetting to photograph it, so it's practically like I was done early. Ahem.

Anyhow.

Over at Our Creative Corner (where, omg, this week they picked my card as a winner! Squeal!) the challenge is to use yellow, kraft, and white. You may think to yourself, has Jessi ever done a colour challenge? And the answer to that would be pretty much a no.


But, I did it (as long as a teensy bit of orange isn't cheating tooooooo badly):

Supplies: patterned paper from Basic Grey "Piccadilly;"
kraft paper from JJ;
sentiment from Studio G; flower from Stampin' Up;
Colorbox Frost White pigment ink; white EP;
brads from Basic Grey
Since I didn't have enough of any of the three colours of brads to do all the flower centres, I mixed it up a little. OK, so as mentioned, you have a whole 5 hours to join in the challenge...and now I must get back to my mad preparations. Friday nights are always a scramble :)

xoxo,
Jessi

Jessi, this is beautiful and a great take on the challenge. I would have loved to play in this one! I haven't worked with Yellows in awhile! Love a good challenge to pop me out of my norm (usually pinks and aqua ha)!

Hugs!

You rocked this colour challenge, perhaps you should do them more often! The multi coloured centres look awesome too :0)
