Vanilla-choc-chip-basic-gre


I made today's card for a color challenge over on Ustamp…the challenge was to use Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip & Basic Grey…and boy was that ever a challenge!! Those colors are certainly not conducive to a girl who is watercoloring flowers all of the time now is it?!?! Anyway, an idea popped into my head and this is what I came up with. I went with a sort of night sky look, maybe over a marsh?

The whole sky is Basic Gray, I just punched a sticky note with the 1 3/4" circle, and used that for the moon, then sponged on the gray over and over until I got the level of darkness I wanted with it brighter around the moon. I added some Very Vanilla satin ribbon and a Basic Grey button (LOVE those new buttons!!!) tied up with Linen Thread. 

Thanks for stopping by!
