Better Get Better

For this card I played along with 2 challenges....Dynamic Duos and The Paper Players.

Over at The Paper Players they have a Tic Tac Toe challenge and I went with the middle row...get well, bling and yellow. For the Dynamic Duos we were able to choose a color to pair Basic Gray with and I chose Daffodil Delight, I just love putting yellow with gray, I think its a great combo!

I used retired stamps for this but current paper. Ever have a card envisioned in your mind but when you go to put it together its a complete fail? That's what happened to me today. I had originally planned to use the retired set Oh, Whale but it wasnt coming together so I put that set back on the shelf. I perused all my current sets and nothing was jumping out at me. Upsy Daisy is such a great set, I refuse to let it collect dust, so I decided to use that one. Then the sentiment drove me crazy because again, none of my current stuff was making me happy. I ended up using an older retired set called Quick Thinking and finally, I was happy with my completed card! The banner with the sentiment is popped up with dimensionals.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Upsy Daisy (retired), Quick Thinking(retired)
Paper: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Gingham Garden DSP
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray
Accessories: Big Shot, Framelits Bitty Banners, Nestabilities Circles, Rhinestones, dimensionals


  1. I love your choice of yellow to pair with the gray and it worked so well with that image!
    Thanks for playing along at Dynamics Duos!

  2. Very beautiful card, Lisa and so worth the effort to get there. I agree that yellow looks fabulous with gray and pink is my other favorite color paired with gray. Great job.

  3. Very beautiful card, Lisa and well worth the effort. Yes, I agree yellow with gray is stunning and pink paired with gray is another one of my favorite color combo. Great job!

  4. Love this...and I know just what you mean when you have something in your head but it won't translate to your paper! Lovely image and colors, glad you were able to work it all out! Thanks for playing my TTT challenge this week!
    Hugs, LeAnne
