Moxie Fab World - Gray is the New Black Challenge

Cath's latest Moxie Fab challenge is Gray is the New Black. The softness of the gray and using it as a neutral in place of black always changes the look of the card.  This Moxie Fab challenge inspired this card and me to create this:


I couldn't resist using the pink with the gray as I love those colors together.  

This card features all new Memory Box stamps from the What's In the Box 2011 release. For the next two weeks the Memory Box Design team is going to share projects using the new What's in the Box release  with a blog blitz over at the Outside the Box Blog. I used on my card a beautiful new stamp called Orchid Branch Print G1718 and Cocoa Bean Butterfly C1714. The sentiment  is Memory Box B1359 Very Best.

Everything is stamped using Versafine Smokey Gray and the edges were sponged with Memento London Fog. The coloring  is done with my watercolor pencils and waterbrush. Everything was accented with the white gel pen. 

I am off  to cut some card kits for my class today.  I hope you have a lovely day!
