Shades of Grey!

Well my diva moment from a week ago was surpassed with this week's top billing at the O2! Surprised? Oh I forgot to mention the other 16,499 rock choir members who helped me lift the roof at the O2   ;) Amazing experience, Michael Buble tried to get in but he didn't have a ticket!!!!!!
Anyway I'm back down to earth and doing a little crafting for this week's Less is More challenge.

This week we want to see...

Now you don't need to use fifty shades but we would like to see a minimum of two shades on your creations this week. Don't forget that all important white (or grey space).

Grey is a great colour especially when mixed with another colour which is a good job as I only had 2 choices of card , one inkpad and one promarker! Come and see what I made:

SU Spiced paisley stamps
Pewter liquid pearls
Grey card stock

Butterfly was from a set of wedding place cards
Sentiment deliberately shadowed!

You may remember from a previous post that I made a box card for Christina who leads our Rock choir, well here is the finished interior and the box I made to put it in.

Hope you are enjoying this glorious weather, long may it last! Thanks for visiting and hopefully leaving a comment so that I can visit you  :)

Singing at the O2 must have been amazing Val and how funny that MB wasn't allowed in! I love your grey cards - the paisley is beautiful and I like the way the butterfly has been left plain on one side in your other card. What an amazing project the wedding boxed card is - a truly special card for a special occasion. Loving the sunshine here! Vicky x
