Aren't these colors fab?! I just think they are so modern and fresh. Gray is such a great neutral. I can't wait to start using the new gray that has been added to our collection of colors, Smoky Slate. It's a nice light gray that will compliment Basic Gray very nicely, I think. I will try to make a card using the two later today so you can see how great they look. For now, here is the card I came up with using these challenges.
I wanted my background to be shimmery so I sponged the embossed chevrons with Illuminate Glimmer Ink. I had to get some new products in there too so I used my new favorite sentiment set, Really Good Greetings, as well as Mosaic Madness for the little shapes anchoring the flower. The flower is pretty amazing on its own, so I didn't want to take too much away from it.
