Embellish Challenge - Yellow, Black, Grey and White

I saw some beautiful cards using these colors out in blogland and they are from the Embellish Challenge to use the colors yellow, black, grey and white and to stamp a background or a pattern. 

Love the colors and the fun pictures!

I created two cards.  The first one is very me... The second one is... Well... you will see.. 


I pulled out my Damask stamp and created a pattern on the grey paper using a Judikins Damask and a new Cover All stamp from Impression Obsession which I love it looks like paint splatters.  So this card I think is very me. 

Here's my second card for the challenge:



So much empty space. Very hard for me to not add any more details. I tried to add gems and do other things to detail it up!:)  But ended up leaving the clean lines. Same splatter background with an overlaid stamp from Stampin up. The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms.

There is a little frost on the berries but you cant see it in the pictures.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
