Yellow & Grey at Cupcake

Good morning to you all! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
Today we have a colour challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge, our lovely Cupcake mummy Faye has chosen YELLOW & GREY! Now it's not a colour combo I use much, in fact I think this is the first card I've done using this combo but I LOVED it!!! Thanks Faye for suggesting this! And instead of going for the CAS approach I've favoured recently, I've gone all out with the embellishments! This card is pretty busy for my standards. Another first for me is the image... yep first Saturated Canary card for me! I thought she'd be difficult to colour, but nope, totally loved colouring her! Here's a close up of the image...
Isn't she just a sweetie?! You can find her over at Saturated Canary, along with so many other beautiful images (this won't be my last SC card, is this the start of another addiction Mmm...). Back to Cupcake... our sponsor this week is Make It Crafty, so pop by the challenge blog to find out more details. Also the Cupcakes have created some really gorgeous crafty projects, don't miss taking a peek! Hugs x
