Going Gray

Hello my friends and happy Friday! Just playing around some more with my Heart Prints stamps set, I really don't use this set enough. The color gray is something I don't use often enough either. I love how it adds a softness to the color combo.

The card is created with a gray card base, the flourish was stamped in gray ink and then added a few tiny hearts in raspberry ink. Attached a raspberry apron lace border and wrapped it with black floss. Embellished the card with a polka dot heart, button and twine. Then finished it with a "XOXO" in the rounded corner.
So what do you think... Could this pass as a wedding card for the CAS32 Challenge?

Did you see the new Polka Dot Paradise Color Challenge over at Embellish Magazine? What a fabulous color combo! I do hope to give it a go today. I've decided to make the best of a weekend spent at home (instead of camping) and create! We will probably take a day trip to somewhere on Saturday.

Anyways, hope you have a fun weekend! I'm very glad you stopped by today, hope you enjoyed!

Maile

  16. By the way, did I mention I really love this color combo?? This was pretty much my wedding colors, minus the gray. Well, I did have silver sparkle shoes and a tiara, maybe that counts?? Hehe!
