CR84FN35 !

Welcome... I have a card to share today for the CR84FN35 Color Challenge. Aren't these colors so soft and pretty!

                                               

I decided to use shades of gray as the main color with just a few touches of the lavender and celery. I like the soft subdued look this gave the card.



My background paper is lilybeedesigns: picket fence 6x6 tiny tablet. The  two gray strips are My Minds Eye: Stella & Rose Hattie 6x6 pad. This darling little bird cage from Impression Obsession is inked in Versa Magic: Niagara Mist and colored with chalk. I used the same ink on the doily (this ink is such a nice gray ~ almost a hint of green in it). Last step was a few buttons, a smidgen of glitter and some green ink along the edges!

Thanks for popping in ~ Lisa

Such a lovely vintage style card - the birdcage is the perfect image and the green inked edge on the text & flower background make the card beautifully complete.

I had to look closely at this card, Lisa, because I love that purple flower on the background paper. So you did not stamp that one? That was already on the paper? I think it's a great look. I'm *always* a fan of doilies, too, and your card is perfectly lovely! BTW, thanks for leaving some love at my blog today - made me smile. :)
