Basic Gray


This is for today's Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS, to use the color Basic Gray. I don't use this color very often, if at all. I thought the Basic Grey Scarlet Letter patterned paper would go perfectly. . .and it selected the rest of my color combination for me! :) I used the Garden Whimsy butterfly and the sentiment is part of one of the stamps in the Absolutely Fabulous set. I couldn't figure out what to do with the upper part of the card, so I cut a bit off and added the scallop border. It made for a different layout and look to the card. This is a different color combo for me, but I kinda like it! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Garden Whimsy, Absolutely Fabulous (Stampin' UP); Paper- DCWV gray, olive, red, Basic Grey Scarlet Letter; Ink- Basic Gray, Ruby Red; Accessories- green, red and gray grosgrain, Making Memories brad, 3/4" and 1" circle punches, slit punch, hole punch, Stardust Stickles, paper piercer.

i'm not a big gray fan, and i haven't ordered any of it yet, but, combined with the Basic Grey paper, it's beautiful!

I love that gray with the red, would never of thought of using green but it sure works.
