see beyond...

Hello friends!!  Here with a card for the current Dynamic Duos color combo.  This week is "black tie" week and the colors are light yellow (So Saffron) and black. there is also a "dessert" option to use ribbon, but using ribbon didn't fit in the with sketch I used (Deconstructed Sketch 93) so I didn't add any.   The DS sketch is really clean and simple and so I wanted to keep my card fairly CAS, as well. 


I used one of my favorite Taylored Expressions stamp sets, Discover Your Wings, for the card.  The yellow patterned paper is a little bit of paper from a Stampin Up! designer paper pack called Tea for Two and the black polka dot is from PaperTrey Ink.  It is a bit hard to see, but I used my Scor-Buddy to create score lines in the white cardstock to make it look like beadboard.  The scalloped piece was made using a EK Success punch and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch with a black sequin added to the body.  The banner was die cut with a fishtail flag die from My Favorite Things. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and black; Patterned Paper:  PTI and Stampin Up!; Stamps:  Taylored Expressions; Ink:  SU! So Saffron & Memento Tuxedo Black; Sequin:  Ellen Hutson; Punches:  Martha Stewart & EKSuccess

Hello Rosie
This is a lovely sketch, it is not often you see one drawn up with the elements all in one area, but of course you do this all the time Rosie!
You have chosen a very unusual colour palette, I understand why DD chose Yellow to partner the dramatic Black, but you have opted for a muted hue, a low saturation of Yellow... (desert), breaking up your Black by using polka dots is a good option; it softens the impact of the Black against such a quiet contrast. The result is a gorgeous card, keeping it within the genre of CAS.
