basic grey wisteria.


I love this Basic Grey paper too! These colors are so soft and pretty. They make it really easy to work a card around. This card really took me all of 15 minutes to make. I actually was originally going to try to make a baby card out of it, but my creative juices just weren't in the mood for baby.

Speaking of baby, I'm going to begin working on some shower invitations for my friend Shannon. I might upload some options to see what you all think.

Also, in the photo below it looks like the jewels on and with the bird are matte dots, they are really the exact same as the jewels on the sentiment. I'm sure they just reflected weird.
Stamps: Damask Designs
Paper: Wisteria Basic Grey; Elegant Eggplant; Basic Grey
Ribbon: American Crafts (isn't it pretty)


Also, several people commented about the ribbon I used on the card for Dawn McVey's color challenge here. I actually bought that ribbon like that! Isn't cool? I wish I had some cool technique, but I don't. I found it in the trim section at JoAnn's and just had to buy it!
