You could win this Amy Design Parrot Die Cut!

Here's our "Neutrals" Challenge mood board...

I love all of these neutral shades, but was most inspired by the black/gray/white photo.  So...

Here's my "Neutral" inspiration!


This 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card is created in shades of gray with white and black accents.  The cardstock base is black and layered with tiny dotted paper from Pink Paislee's new C'est La Vie Collection.  The colors in the different patterns were perfect for this challenge.  The floral patterned paper is  matted in shades of gray cardstock.

I misted the chipboard sentiment with Tattered Angels Pearl spray mist.  The flowers have a touch of gesso on the edges and are highlighted with a Wink of Stella pen for shimmer.   I had to add a touch of color and chose green stems and ribbon for contrast.

I love it when a new post comes up for Double D so I can visit the team's blogs and see how they created the beauties I have been looking at on the team blog and also check out what else they have been doing. Love your papers, die cuts, flowers and that little pop of green. Beautiful design.

Oh, how beautiful in the shades of gray with those gorgeous roses and the pop of green! I've been enjoying this card since I saw it on Double D, but it's nice to read how you created it. Wonderful with the gesso on the roses and the mist on the "hello". A real WOW card, Vicki!
