STAMPTV CSS AUGUST COLOR COMBO CHALLENGE

Hi blog friends! 

We're here with another fabulous Stamp TV CSS Design Team blog hop and we hope you'll have some fun and get some inspiration. 

The color challenge combo is to create a card using Grey, White and Yellow with one other color of your choice. 

If you've come here from the super talented Geri's blog you're in the right order of blogs for this hop.  If not, you may want to start this hop from the beginning so you don't miss one of these fabulous creations.

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, August 13.


Here are two cards I created for the challenge

 
Technique:  Heat embossing with White EP - resist. 
 


Stamps:  "Because of You" and "Sent with Love"
I love the way so many of Gina K's stamps go together.  It's fun to mix and match them. 
 
Now it's time to head on over to Geri's super talented daughter Brenda and check out her fabulous creation (s).  
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by I hope you enjoy the hop and if you'd like to play along, please do.  Just link up your card to the Forum link

I am SO loving sequins on cards and have to pick some up so I can make a gorgeous card like yours! Love the way you put the colors together and then added a hint of turquoise. The second card is a great idea for a wed-
