Moxie Fab Olympics of Stamping Challenge: Thank You

I don't know if I'll get through all the categories, but here is my third card for the Moxie Fab Olympics of Stamping Challenge. This one is for the "Thank You" category:

Quite some time ago I was checking out one of my favorite blogs, Twig & Thistle, and came across this post. I was very intrigued by the color combination of yellow and gray, especially for a wedding. Well, it must have really stuck with me, because I remembered it the other day and used it as inspiration for this card. I love gray, in general. It can really step up a project and turn it into something unexpected when you use it instead of white or cream. I got the chance to play with my new Large Scalloped Border die from Papertrey Ink. Can I just say...I love it! It cuts like buttah, really, it does. And I love the size of this die; it fills a gap in my scallop border collection. Now, finally, to finish off the card, I added Lemon Tart grosgrain ribbon and some clear pearls in the center of the flowers:

If you've never tried this color combination, you should! You might be surprised at how elegant your card can become! And if you do, make sure to link me so that I can see what you make! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a great week!
