Hubs and I had a lovely day out in the sunshine, it was 83 degrees and not at all humid. We found a little park near the potomac and hung out for a few hours. I find water calming. Then we did something we haven't done since before the pandemic...we ate at a restaurant. They had outdoor seating and we were the only customers...likely due to the time 4 pm before the dinner rush. It was lovely to be waited on and not have to deal with takeout containers. Had they been busy, we would not have stopped. We are still one vaccine short of being fully immunized.
On to my card for today. The challenge at Color Hues is yellow and gray. This is one of my most favorite color combinations. I am also entering at Tic Tac Toe using the center row of Embossing, Florals and Encouraging Sentiment.
I used my new Reverse Confetti coverplate - I can't remember the name and its not on their packaging, but it is a newer one. I cut it in gray and yellow. I mounted the gray on to a gray card base; added the yellow petals to the gray panel after adding some Copic coloring to the inner portions of each petal.
I finished the flowers with yellow gems though they are showing up a peculiar color in the photo. The white embossed sentiment is from The Greetery.
Oh my goodness--this is a winner, Cat! One of my favorites! How great you had nice weather & could eat outside at the restaurant! We're fully vaccinated & I'm hoping soon to meet 2 friends--also vaccinated!
What a striking card. Great colour combination and the die cutting looks fabulous Cat x. Striking coverplate x. So glad you managed to 'eat' outside and like you we are one vaccination short of being fully immunized x.
I love this color combination and your card is stunning. And how the blossoms shine.
So sunny, bright and lovely, Cat ... it's warmth mimics the wonderful day you had ... eating out must've been a fabulous end to your afternoon! Hugs, Anita :)
Pretty card, Cat. How nice for you both to be out and about and enjoy a "normal" dinner out of the house. You guys must be vaccinated. Great! Me, too!
