One layer Wednesday .....

... Susan has a lovely challenge for us this week.  The One Layer Wednesday - OLW76 challenge is to use grey, white and a pop (just a bit) of a bright colour.  Susan's cards are simply gorgeous and they are the inspiration for my card.  I do like the softness of stamping in grey - it gives a totally different feel to the card.  I think this card will go into my stash for when I need a sympathy card.

I've kept the layout, but changed the stamp and sentiment - I think the blue gems work beautifully with the soft grey ink.  Clean, simple and quick.


Stamps:  Kanban - All Occasion - both the flower and sentiment
Ink:  Memento - London Fog
Accessories:  Blue gems and card from stash

I'm really excited this morning - I'm off to the airport shortly to pick up Jonathan, his plane is due in at 8.45am.  I know that Jonathan has only been in the States for three weeks, but it has felt much longer this time than before Christmas.  Kathryn is coming to the airport with me - she can't wait to see her Daddy.  That's all for now - I'll be back again tomorrow!  Have a good day.
