There was no way I was going to miss the color challenge over at the Paper Players.  Lucky for me the challenge ran for two weeks because of the Stampin' Up! convention so I was able to make a card early and post it while I'm away from home.

As usual, I see a card with Crumb Cake and I'm practically powerless to resist!  Add Basic Gray and I am in raptures!

I inked up my brand new Raining Flowers stamp set for this card.  And to add a little twist mixing some old with some new, I used some retired designer paper in shades of Basic Gray for the bottom half of this card (I don't remember the name of the paper, though.  Eek!).  I think I'm really going to like this stamp set.  It has some very interesting stamps and lots of two-step stamping potential!

Thanks for stopping by today!
