Shades of Gray

That's our Diva Coffee Break Design challenge for today: Black, White and Basic Gray or Going Gray. Well guess what- I used both. The funny thing about this color combo is my card looks to me like I just took a black and white photo of a colorful card!

I really enjoyed making THIS card so decided to use the layout again, in a little different way. Instead of using circles I used hearts, and my little "critter" is the sheep from Pun Fun. Of course this isn't a clean & simple challenge so I added some fun black satin ribbon and a Basic Gray corduroy button.

Make sure you go check out the Diva blog and consider playing along with us!!

Hope you like it! TFL!

PS- Don't forget, I've got blog candy coming as soon as I can get my post complete!
