Moxie Fab World's "Gray is the New Black" Challenge!

Cath Edvalson at Moxie Fab World issued a new challenge entitled Gray is the New BlackI have only played one Moxie Fab Challenge that I can remember, so one of my New Year's Resolutions is to try a few more!  Here is my entry:


I made my background using Papertrey Ink's Guide Lines 1 and Giga Guide Lines (with the coordinating grid paper), using Smokey Shadow Ink and Tim Holtz Scattered Straw Distress ink.  I then added some Platinum Liquid Pearls to the "dots" in the pattern.  Stamped and paper-pieced PTI's Year of the Flower: Daffodil on a piece of white cardstock that I ran through my Cuttlebug with PTI's Woodgrain Impression plate.  Sentiment is from PTI's Round and Round Anniversary set.  I wish the picture was better, but it is rather gloomy here in upstate New York!  Good thing I have stamps like this to keep my hope alive that it will be a nice warm spring after this long chilly winter!
