I combined a few challenges to make this card, and although I'm not sure about the colors, I'm glad to have dug into my stash and used some long overlooked supplies. I found a partial pack of Prism paper cardstock in white, gray and black that I've hoarded for years and used the gray to die-cut the SB nested ovals with my Big Shot. I wove some SU! retired silver and white ribbon between the ovals and attached a little bow. The white panel was die-cut with a GMD stitched oval die and I placed a few clear gemstones on the upper right. The dsp is from the DCWV Luxury stack of pearlized papers and I used a matching Prism papers card base. The sentiment is by Inkadinkado and was stamped with Smoky Slate ink by SU!. I keep wanting to add a touch of pink somewhere because it's a mother's day card, but for the time being I'll leave it as is.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Double D challenges - "when skies are gray" - make a card using mostly gray
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - girl power
Cuttlebug Mania - ribbons and bows
Our big Noreaster fizzled out for the most part, but I am not complaining by any means! Bring on spring now and I think we've had enough "onion snow" as the farmers call it :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day whatever you do! Enjoy the sunshine!
