I was in a grey mood...

and I sure wish I hadn't been. It took me a while to figure out how I should color the Tilda image I used for this card. It didn't turn out too bad but I can tell you all one thing, I won't be choosing grey for a card in a long time. Not only did I end up not knowing how to color the image I also didn't have any grey mulberry roses that would go with this card. I ended up having to use Fred She Said Designs flowers. I ordered them a while back and finally found a way to use them on a Magnolia card. I think they add a sweet touch. The sentiment comes from Sentiments 4 You, they have an awesome collection of freebie sentiments and this one so happnens to be one of them. Sorry for having to cut this post short today (as if my other ones are any longer, lol) but I have a lot of house work to get done. And before I go here is my card.

  11. This is such a pretty easel card and I think you've done a wonderful job using grey. I don't think I've ever done a card in grey only because I've never thought to. Definitley going to give it a try! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great weekend!

  13. Oh I like it! I like it a lot! Thank you for following me (I am following you back) and for posting my candy on your sidebar.


  14. Rosalee, there's nothing wrong with the way this card looks. It's quite fabulous, and I love the way the grey turned out. Remember grey is a neutral and anything would go with it. Thanks for leaving your kind comment about my candy give-away. However, if you want to be considered in the second part of it (the Spellbinder on the far right side) you need to make a comment as to which of my cards during this year that you find to be one of your favorites. I have to make it fair for everyone, so, if you are interested, please stop back by. Hugs, dj1952 (Debra)

  15. I think you have done a fantastic job with the colour combo x
    If you had no grey flowers, you could always colour white ones with a promarker.

    hugs sally x

  16. Rosalee I think you card is lovely and I think the flowers are perfect... love the charm!
    Crafty Hugs,


I love comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love. Hugs and God Bless.
