Black and Yellow

First a couple of sneeky peeks, you will see the cards tomorrow, the first one is from my challenge card for Funky Hand's monthly challenge

and this one is from my card for Lily-Boos monthly challenge. A new challenge will be posted on both sites tomorrow, I will give you links so that you can all join in the fun.......
I did this card for Cute Card Thursday, where the challenge this week is black and yellow, and Papertake Weekly, where the challenge is black, white, and one other colour, so this fits the bill for both. I found this pack of black and white chipboard pieces from making memories on sale last year - it's one of those packs full of ridiculous sentiments that I for one would never use, even on a scrapbook page. Frolic? Can you imagine a card/scenario that would fit that word? Let's face it, the word is not in most peoples everyday vocabulary 'oh yes, we went for a picnic yesterday and had a lovely frolic in the grass', we all hear that sort of remark every day. Don't we?
I digress (as usual), back to the card, it's made entirely of frolicless chipboard pieces, so the pack wasn't a total waste of money. I added a couple of yellow flowers from Poppicrafts

The gems were from poundland in the UK

That's it for today folks. Anne has gone to her friends in South Carolina now, I have done some housework, and the coast is clear for some serious crafting.................but first I need a large iced caramel latte from dunkin donuts. See you tomorrow

Your "frolic-less" card is absolutely stunning. And I am so jealous that you've got a Dunkin Donuts near by. I haven't been to one in years! I LOOOOOOVE their glazed donuts.

Great card Enfys, black and yellow look great together especially with white there. I would use the word frolic if there was a pic of kids playing by the waters edge lol. That's a word I would use but not all the time lol. Looking forward to seeing your full sneak peeks tomorrow.
