Today's card is a Miss You card for Operation Write Home that was inspired by the current "Going Gray" challenge at Cards In Envy and OWH Sketch #155.
|SU Too Kind stamp set in StazOn jet black|
I love this stamp set. It even turns out for stamp-challenged card makers like me! I used a first, second, third generation stamping technique to achieve the various shades of gray seen in the flowers.
"Miss You" is one of the most card themes requested by our deployed troops. And, I think the gray, black, and white palette is perfect for a Miss You card -- especially since that gingham ribbon brightens up the palette. But, I also think this would make a nice sympathy card. Might have to make a few more of these.
Tomorrow (January 21) is the deadline to link up a card for this month's social-media inspired challenge at Words 2 Scrap By. Hope you'll join us!
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
