Thank you - CCC11

Thank you - CraftyCalendarChallenge #11 sponsored by Prairie Fairy Designs. The challenge was to use their sketch and the theme 'around the world'. I think my card has a tropical feel to it and the flowers looked like hibiscus to me. So I went to Hawaii. :O)
To make my card, I cut a piece of white cardstock at 3 7/8 x 4 1/2 inches. Then I punched a 2 5/16 inch circle and used it for my moon.  I brayered yo yo yellow over the entire piece of white cardstock. Then I placed the moon and brayered some grey and then very lightly with some black. Then I stamped the image in black. I sponged black in a semi circle across the bottom of my card then I pounced black all around the edges. I matted the finished image on yo yo yellow, grey and black and then I attached it to a piece of grey card. I stamped a little branch of greay on a piece of white cardstock and then I stamped Thank you in black. I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I punched the sentiment out and attached it to a piece of yo yo yellow and two pieces of black cardstock. I added a little piece of decorative trim and my flowers with silver brad inserts. Stamps are from Stampin' Up! Fresh Cuts set.
I think my NEW favorite color combo is yellow, grey and black. :O)
