HIMCR -- Crushed Gray Bay

Time for a new challenge at
This week it's time for a color challenge.
We would like to see your new creations using:
Crushed Curry
Basic Gray
Bermuda Bay

Our sponsor this week is
and one lucky winner will receive 3 images.

I absolutely adore the color combo for this week!  While I was gathering my supplies to make this card, I realized I didn't have a lot of items that would coordinate.  So I just made some.  The seam binding was originally white.  I dyed it with some Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.  The brads all began as plain mini silver brads.  My ProMarkers colored them to match the scheme.

The aa milne quote (one of my favorites) just seemed to be perfect for this image.  It's from the Glitz Finnley 6x6 stack.  I love the chalkboard look that this sheet has.

After I fussy cut the sweet image out, I added her to the card with some dimensional tape.  Doesn't she look adorable on top of that background?

Please take a trip over to
