Color Inspiration

It's challenge time again at Scrap Tiffany!  We were given this picture to draw inspiration from.  I love the steel gray and the yellow together.  Now to be honest , at first I was a little scared of the combo.  Yellow is not one of my fave colors in real life although I do tend to craft with it alot, but usually in combo with other primary or bright colors.  And I don't tend to use grey, well ever.  As a matter of fact I have been using up grey cardstock as shadows or base pieces in some paper piecings just to use it up.  On the other hand in real life this is my go to neutral color clothing choice.  I recently knitted a baby hat and am in the process of a matching scarf for a pregnant friend and chose steel gray and white as opposed to typical baby pastels. 

So with that in mind as my secondary inspiration I made this sweet card to accompany the gift. The shaped card was cut from the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge, the scalloped circle and regular circle from Alphalicious with the circle for the tag hidden on the Gypsy and the hippo and sentiment are from Create a Critter.  The grey was something unknown from my stash and inked with Memento London Fog.  The teal is American Crafts, the yellow is Cosmo Cricket DeLovely and the gray pattern is a scrap from BoBunny Peacock Lane.  I also used Gunmetal stickles and silver opal Liquid pearls and the Argyle and Tiny Bubbles embossing folders.   I made two of these cards and the extra is in my Etsy shop so feel free to check it out.
