The Play Date Cafe Challenge 64 & Moxie Fab Grey Challenge

Finally getting back into a card groove today.  Yesterday got taken up by getting bad news, taking Luis to the dentist and getting my car clamped.  Not really a great day in all.  However, today is a new day and, although it's rainy and humid, so far it's been better than yesterday. 

I came up with a little thank you card for The Play Date Cafe Challenge and also Moxie Fab's Grey Is The New Black challenge.  Thanks, PDC for including grey in your colour pallette this week!  :)

Supplies: Card Blank: Handy Hippo; Cardstock: Bazzill Basics & Paperbilities; Stamps: Hero Arts flowers & sentiment; Ink: SU Basic Grey; Bling: Queen & Co & Doodlebug; Other: Nestabilities Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles, Fiskars paper crimper & silver metallic rub on paste

This is so cute, Jen! I love the blue ink on grey cardstock for the flower and the crimped stems are fabulous!

I'm glad today is a better day. Oh, and yes, Damian has gotten over his dislike of my wellie liners. LOL

Love the corrugated stems on these flowers. Hope playing with us in the play date cafe improved your day, what horrid luck getting clamped! Thanks for playing along with us :)

I'm not sure what clamped is but it doesn't sound like something that is followed by an "oh yay!" :( Sorry yesterday was cruddy but you made an awfully pretty card! Lovely way to use the colors and the crimped stems are so much fun! Glad you joined us at The Play Date Cafe!
