Mono Gray


               Using the color palette from The House That Stamps Built I worked up this card.  Starting with lite gray card stock, I cut the background with a Spellbinders PostageStamp Die. I cut a second one with a slightly darker shade of gray and trimmed it down and stamped the sentiment with a Hampton Arts Stamp, black StayzOn and clear embossing powder to shine it up.  I also edged the top hickory smoke ink.  I cut the flower out of different shades of gray and black cs and highlighted with a white gel pen.
All of this was adhered to a white top fold cs base and then some pearl gems added to the corner for some blingage.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may pretty please:

Fab use of this unusual colour palette for a floral themed card. I LOVE it. It's a monochromatic palette and you did a terrific job. Which is not easy with these colours. Love the floral dies you used too! Thanks so much for joining us at CCCB!
