Going Gray

No I'M not going gray (well maybe a little) but my card is! I love to use gray as my neutral, it is becoming a favorite of mine. I think it really allows color to jump off the page at you. These are fancy pants acrylic stamps, I love the selection I get in those large 12x12 sheets! This is "In the garden". Today's challenge on SCS was to use gray as your neutral so this was really fun for me.

Here is a little close up of the embellished portion of my card. I just love these little robin's nest pearls that I can color with my copics to fit my project! The velvet ribbon is just yummy and I like the hit of red to my tulips. I think this would make a nice anniversary card so I will probably do a bunch. A fairly simple layout helps facilitate this. I'm off to get some playing done with my new MFT stamps that arrived yesterday.....You're gonna LOVE EM'!

Fabulous work!!! I love gray, in fact, I think I love EVERY color, LOL.

So far, the first three blogs I've read to today are making me "shiver me timbers" as Popeye would say. All of you seem to have something we have to wait for, you ladies are such teases but I love all of the suspense. LOL & TFS.
