Shades of grey!


I am rushing with two posts here today as I had made both cards to suit some challenges and they close in a few hours!!
This one is for a priest's birthday. I had treated myself to some Goody Boxes from Craftwork cards and this was from the black and white box.
The sentiment I found on google from a free site. If anyone wants the link I have it.
I punched black paper using MS punch for the flowers, added some card candi and used a nestie shape for the sentiment. I added a gorgeous piece of black velvet ribbon (doesn't show up well in photo but gorgeous in real life). The birthday sentiment came in the goody box.
I would like to enter this into
A gem of a challenge - make it sentimental
2 Sisters challenge - tic tac toe (diecuts/punch, sentiment,flowers)
My Time to Craft - sentiment as main focus
Word Art Wednesday - uplifting sentiment
Crafting for all Seasons - monochromatic

I'll be back with my next card in a minute :)

It's lovely Pinky - I'm sure he'll love it too. I'm off to Port Sunlight today and then this evening going to one of my dance socials - theme being Shades of May this time! Not 50 of them though.
