Shades of Gray plus one

Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I have been very busy these last few days creating cards, I have 2 more posts scheduled for later today so be sure to check back!

This week our hostess at Digital Tuesday is the talented Sharon, and she wants to see

shades of gray plus one other color

on our creations this week. I love gray and had so much fun creating this card!

This is also the card I made for Annika, one of my Whimsy Stamps and Stamp Something Design Team mates. Whimsy is holding a "circle of friends" blog hop for her to show her that we are there for her in this difficult time. Unfortunately I did not have time to be part of the hop but of course Annika has been in my thoughts and I hope this card will put a little smile on her face. If you'd like to hop along to support Annika you can start here at Crystals blog.

The image I used today is from Phindy's place. It has been colored with my derwent coloursoft pencils and then blended with baby oil.
I used some brand new gray patterned paper from a DCWV stack that I just picked up at Joann's. The pink Designer paper is an oldie from Stampin Up. I distressed and sewed along the edges. The flowers were made by punching out assorted flowers with a Su punch (spring bouquet - retired), then I crumbled them up and then layered them.
My sentiment is from Stampin Up.

I have made this card with a few other challenges in mind:
Hope you'll join us this week at digital tuesday, we have a brand new sponsor, limited runs, and a fun prize is up for grabs!

Now that's all for this post. Hope you'll get some time to check back later for my february penny black at all sorts card and then at noon EST we are starting our monthly Whimsy digital release blog hop with some new super cute digis and a few prizes too!
