Cards in Envy Challenge – Going Gray

Well, this challenge is right up my alley.  Since turning 50, I have done nothing but go gray!  Seriously though, I don’t often do monochromatic cards and this  Cards in Envy Challenge was really fun.

At Cards in Envy we ask that you make you card to fit into a standard A2 card, which is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.

How about some inspiration?  This week I used the Lawn Fawn “Beep Beep” stamp set which I colored with Copic Markers in both cool and warm grays.  The tag was created using the Lawn Fawn “Birthday Tags” set.  To make the ground, I used the Simon Says Stamp curved edge die and finished off my tag with some bakers twine in gray and white.

I hope you will join us at Cards in Envy this week and show us how you are going gray!

  1. Totally adorable!!!!


  2. I like the two patterns you put together. I like how you used a tag for the image and sentiment! Nicely done!


  3. This is the cutest card! I love that little robot and the different gray patterns on your card!


  4. I hear you!

    I adore how many variations of grey you used. So representative of the reality of aging.
