A rainy Monday afternoon - again - here in NW Florida.....tried to go for a walk after work this am, looked like I had a little while before the rain came again but instead got about 5 blocks from home and it started raining, came home a bit damp :)
Todays card is for one of the Birthday challenges over at Flourishes - its actually a challenge they have been doing a few weeks now and I just haven't had a chance to play along. The challenge is to CASE the feature DT member - todays is Heather.
The first picture is the card of Heathers that I cased - I really liked the gray tones of the DP layers in the background so that is where I started with mine.

For my card I used the single tulip from one of my newest Flourishes sets and stamped it in memento London fog onto a pretty pearlish gray paper and colored it with prismacolor pencils. I then used 3 different gray toned DP's (one had a slightly purple tone to it too) and then the base cardstock is the same as the one I used for the main image.
I used 2 gray toned ribbon and some cream colored pearl drop with a viva décor pen for accents, and a die cut border piece using a Spellbinders die.(I cut 2 of the border die - the one in gray is below the ribbons and hard to see)
The phrase is one from Gina K.
All for today - going to try and get into the craft room but may end up on the couch working on my DD's locker hook rug or reading as the rain has me a bit on the lazy side today :)
