Gray isn't always gloomy....

Gray isn't always gloomy especially when it is the theme of a card challenge. I had a very fun evening last night despite the fact that DH didn't make it home from his business trip due to air-flight delays. Thankfully he will be home this morning. Anyway...last night I spent the evening in the studio. This card was one of many & made for two Splitcoaststamper's challenges. Friday's Ways to Use It (WT311) to use gray as a neutral. The second challenge was today's Inspirational Challenge (IC273) which I chose this bed from Serena & Lily as my inspiration. I scored my tile scored my background & then sanded it. Gina K has an easy to follow video on the scoring technique. Added two Not Quite Navy circles & topped one with a More Mustard inked chipboard star with a smaller More Mustard star. The other circle was topped with More Mustard DP from a retired SU! Patterns Pack. The Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment was punched out using the Word Window punch. Have a great weekend!!
Supplies all from SU:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: More Mustard, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy, DP-retired Pattern Packs
Ink: More Mustard, Not Quite Navy
Accessories: chipboard star, sanding block, star punch, circle punch, word window punch.
