Gray is the New Black

     Can I just say that I have become quite the fan of  There are always such fun challenges that I want to try.  Now if only I had the time to try them all!  At any rate, here is a card that I made up for the Gray is the New Black Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  
I had fun making this one up and choosing the colors because really, there are so many colors that go with gray!  These particular colors spoke to me the most : )  I have so many people that I could send it to, now I just need to make that decision!  It is hard to tell, but the background paper has a really pretty shimmer to it.  I wish it would photograph better!  Hope you enjoy!

  • Gray Cardstock: American Crafts Damask Cardstock
  • Ivory Shimmer Paper: Recollections
