Delys has set us a very challenging challenge at Just Add Ink this week!!    The idea is to make a card or scrapbook page using the following colours only:

I so wanted to stamp a sentiment in black, but as it turned out I had a lot of fun making a card in monochromatic tones!  Here's what I came up with:

Stamps: My Friend, Tagtastic
Card: So Saffron textured and smooth, Whisper White
Ink: So Saffron and Daffodil Delight stampin' pads, Versamark inkpad
Other: White embossing powder, sponge daubers, So Saffron 3/8" taffeta ribbon, Whisper White 1/8" taffeta ribbon, Itty Bitty shapes punch, Basic Pearls, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, Perfect Pennants die, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, mini glue dots

Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's yellow creations!  We hope to inspire you to play along with us this week at Just Add Ink.
