A Card Without Color

I suppose gray is a color though, so technically this isn't a card without color. Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #45 was especially challenging this week because gray, black, and white are the only three colors!

I love the way my card turned out -- very classic and elegant in the monochromatic tone. I think it would be perfect for a wedding or anniversary. I used some brand new products from the Occasions Mini catalog (Walk in the Park DSP & Whisper White Satin Ribbon) and the Little Leaves sizzlit from the big catalog.

Supplies: Warm Words, Going Gray cardstock, White cardstock, Basic Black ink, Walk in the Park DSP, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Little Leaves die for the Big Shot
