Color Inspiration #159

Hey stampers! Every now and again, I force myself to use a color that really isn't my cup of tea. As much as I love all the bright and pretty colors, I know I can't play with them all the time.

So, today we play with Basic Gray. I know....I know.....there's lots of you who think I am crazy to not love this color. I know so many of you do! I am just not a gray lover.......and it's not because I have to religiously color my hair every 4 weeks to hide this color either! LOL!!!

This week's color challenge is Basic Gray, Old Olive and Not Quite Navy.

Strange, huh?

Here's the card I made to give you a starting point...........

I hope you play along with this week's color challenge. If you make a project, please link the project's web address to this post using the Linky Tool below.
