52 Cards a Year: Challenge Number Three

Large Focal Image: Gray, Black, White and One Other Color: Thank You Card.

Sorry for the delay! I am having some allergy issues that are really knocking me out! You will also have to wait for my samples... I will make mine later today. :)

With this challenge we are focusing on the color Gray being a hot trend... Gray and Pink, Gray and Orange, Gray and Yellow... soft Gray, Charcoal Gray... but be sure to use GRAY and a splash of another color.

This sketch features a large focal image too... it's up to you how to fill that white space. The arrows do not literally need to be ARROWS... try flowers or hearts... maybe stars... brads, buttons or felt embellishments... just 3 of something that matches.


Post your creation on your blog or favorite forum... and don't forget to leave a link to your creation here!

And remember... there are no rules! If you don't want to make a thank you card that's ok... or you can incorporate some other colors if you feel like it... just try to stick with the basic concept so we can all be inspired!

Sigh, I should play along with you... but I'm lacking inspirations & desire. When I get my groove back I'll come back and play from the beginning.
