Kristina's Colour Challenge #14




I read the colours for Kristina's challenge last night before she edited to say white was included. Sooo it was a real challenge for me to leave out white but was fun! These are a combo that I dont think I have ever used before. Makes for quite a bold looking card but I actually do like them!

The background for my card is Going Grey and I have run the black through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I have used the Stampin' Up sets Bud Basics and Its Your Birthday.

Colours used are: Basic Grey, Going Grey, Basic Black, Ruby Red and River Rock.

Jean,
Great card! It is such a crisp and clean look. I love your card using both gray colors. I wouldn't change a thing. I love the dimension on your flowers. Really nicely done!
