Sweet Things for Hues to Use

It's still Monday here in Alaska so I'm getting the weekly Hues to Use over at Power Poppy done in time, wooohoo! The links are open ended but I like to push myself to get each challenge done before they post the next color combo. It doesn't always happen but I try!

This weeks colors are 2 grays and a rich yellow so I decided to go with the digital set Sweet Simple Things. The beehive is obviously going to be yellow but then I also decided to make the foxglove and cosmos yellow. There are yellow varieties of those flowers, I just don't think they're as popular as their pink/purple counterparts.

To bring in the gray I colored the stand the beehive is on with my cool grays and then I used SU Basic Gray as my card base. I had printed the main image out with the sentiment slightly below it so I trimmed the paper down, rounded the top corner edges, adhered it to the card base and then added a ribbon across the middle.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. GORGEOUS!!! A real honey of a card - goes with our color scheme so perfectly, and yet has a vibrancy that takes it to the next level!! Really well done.
