Ways To Use It Challenge 311

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Technically, here in MO it is after midnight and I had gone to bed just to toss & turn so I got up and looked to see if the Ways To Use It Challenge was posted and sure enough, it was!
The Ways To Use It Challenge 311 was themed: "Grey doesn't need to be gloomy"...and I have to agree! Basic Grey & the retired Going Gray from Stampin Up are both wonderful colors that I love to use but sadly don't use it often enough. Tonight was my shot to use it and I am happy I did! :)

I used Basic Grey with a splash of Regal Rose and i'm lovin the outcome!

Ways To Use It Challenge #311 Card:

Stamps: Glad Friends (set #27)
Ink: Basic Grey
Cardstock: Basic Grey, PTI White, Regal Rose Patterns DSP
Accessories: Fancy Flower Punch, Basic Grey Corduroy Button, Basic Grey Taffeta Ribbon, Stamp A Ma Jig, Scor Tape

I think this is actually the first time I broke out my Fancy Flower Punch and crumbled up the cardstock to make my flower. I punched 3 and added the button to the center to hold them together. The sentiment was a single stamp that SU sold a year or so ago that I blew dust off of to use for my challenge to make sure all my sets see ink this year! Glad Friends is set #27!!

Have I said how much I love this!! I really do!!

Well folks, I really do need my beauty sleep! LOL
Off to bed I must go!
Thanks for stopping by & have a terrific Thursday!!
