Colour Challenge 23

Today is my turn to post the Colour Combo Challenge over at In Love With Stamping. The challenge colours are:-

Basic Grey
Ballet Blue
Certainly Celery

These colours where chosen as some of the UK demo's where saying on a thread that they where finding it hard to incorporate Grey card stock into their creations. So I had a light bulb moment and decided grey had to be one of the colours in this weeks challenge. LOL

Here is my card, a very simple design, but I have to say I am very pleased with how it turned out.

The base card is Certainly Celery, with a panel of Basic Grey, stamped with the Canvas background stamp in Basic Grey ink. The butterfly from the Garden Whimsy set is stamped onto Whisper White card in Ballet Blue ink, then layered onto Certainly Celery, Basic Grey then Ballet Blue card. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Grey and from the Thank You Kindly stamp set.

Now I have just looked out of the window and it's snowing here. We have missed most of the snow that has hit the country this past week or so. My son is hoping school will be closed tomorrow! I bet he is going to be disappointed....

Bye for now

Lovely card Carole :) Thanks for sharing.

I wonder if all the schools will be shut tomorrow because of this snow! It's getting quite thick here.
