Gray & Rainy

Hi Friends! I hope you are having a super weekend! My card today is for two challenges; the Play Date Color Challenge & the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.


The colors are very fashionable~ I was shopping earlier today & there were two displays featuring these colors in household items & another display with clothes. The colors I used are So Saffron, Going Gray and Basic Gray from Stampin' Up. The designer papers are from a retired series called "Walk in the Park". My umbrella stamp and rain background stamp is from Unity's February Kit of the Month. I stamped & masked the umbrella & then stamped the rain using Going Gray ink. I stamped the umbrella again on So Saffron & paper pieced it. I went over the handle with a black marker so it would show up better. The sentiment is from a retired SU! set called "And Everything Nice". 

Thanks for stopping! Hugs,
 Marilyn

Marilyn...thank you for your comment on my card at Splitcoast Stampers. I love being able to follow comments to blogs and have so enjoyed visiting you here. I love your work.

It was so funny to see the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge, because I just posted a card tonight that could fit that sketch almost perfectly and I thought I made it up. I did the card before I saw the sketch!!! Guess I only thought I was being creative...LOL! If I hadn't been too late, I would have entered my card!

Yours is adorable and I like the color combo too. Great blog and I'm happy to be following you now. Thanks again!
