Inspired By #40 Neutral Tones

Hello peeps!  Thursday it is, with a new Inspired By challenge.  Here's my take on it:

And here's Laurel's pretty prompt:

And just for fun, our challenge today is sponsored by Stamplorations!! Woohoo, I love their stamps!  Be sure to check out the details on the IB blog!!!  My card uses a set called Faith Expressions; I stamped the floral image in Gray Granite and colored in the border with a Smoky Slate blend, then added some shading with a Crumb Cake blend:

I added a scalloped border, and stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso directly on some retired SU paper called A Little Foxy that was diecut with a stitched die..  I added an Early Espresso and Crumb Cake mat and some (really old) grosgrain ribbon as well as a couple of candy dots.  Basic and soft, just right for a sympathy or thinking of you card.

The DT has some fabulous samples to show you and I'm willing to bet you'll be inspired to create something wonderful as well!  Share it with us!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Learning to jump rope!

Wow, what a great use of those neutrals. Have you ever shown us a pic of your craft storage area? She'll be doing double dutch with friends in no time, I bet. Jump rope, , jacks, pick-u-sticks,hopscotch, hide and seek, blowing bubbles ... all faves of mine as a youngster and teenager.
