Gray Garden PPA15

Do you have a favorite type of challenge? I LOVE Color Challenges! And this week at Pals Paper Arts we are hosting a fun and fresh combo: Basic Gray, Taken with Teal, and Ruby Red. I subbed in Real Red and whipped up a quick card filled with fun patterns.

Designer Series Paper is a wonderful stampin' staple. A few Basic Gray patterns create an interesting background with minimal effort. A strip of Double Stitch Ribbon anchors the sentiment from Great Friend and helps draw the eye to my Gallery Frame. Butterflies with rhinestone bodies flutter on a chipboard branch from On Board So Tweet. All simple elements combined for a sassy statement.

I hope you'll join us this week at Pals Paper Arts - we love it when you play along with us!
