Blushing Grey


My card meets 2 challenges today.......the WT311 to use the color grey, and the StampinB's #99 to use a flower on your card. I used another long-unloved backgrounder stamp, called Polka Dot by SU! and stamped the dots with Color Box white ink. The sentiment is by SU! done in basic grey. The flower was made by punching 3 scalloped circles and distressing them before attaching them together. I used blushing bride DP for each layer, using a different pattern of the same color. I finished it off with a scalloped border, a metal brad and some narrow satin ribbon.
I hope you're having a great Thursday today and thanks for making my blog a stop on your rounds !
