Thank You

It's been gloomy in Sydney since saturday and so nice to have seen blue sky and lil' bit of sunshine today..

I rarely make any card with dark colours. This time however, i dare myself to create one. 

This card of mine will be entering these following challenges:
1. Wee Memories Challenge 69 (Use Patterned Paper); The opposite of last week challenge that this week we ought to use Patterned Paper.
3. Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique Challenge #85 (impress us with technique using any embossing tools:powder, folder,etc)

Embossed the image and sentiment using white embossing powder.
(sorry the picture is a bit dark. took it at night time)

Stamp: Upsy Daisy (Stampin' Up!)
CS / DSP: Basic Black, Basic Grey / Black DSP from Neutrals Collection
Other: Vintage blue Seam Binding (Color Sealed), Liquid Pearl-Platinum (Ranger), White embossing Folder, Versamark

Hope you like my take on the dark colours card and see you next time,


  1. Wow Jeane...this card is so the colors and the layout :)

  2. This is gorgeous. Elegant. Love the colors, the layout and the crinkle ribbon along the bottom. Fabulous card. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Lawnscaping and Wee Memories!

  3. So pretty! I love the color combo, so rich and warm. I think you did "dark colors" beautifully!! And choosing the white embossing powder gave it a nice contrast. The gathered ribbon is so yummy, too. Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

  4. Really pretty! I love the contrast of the white embossing over the dark paper and I love how you used DSP instead of just cardstock, very pretty! You did a great job! Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
