I was ready to give up on this but I am so glad that I was persistent and kept at it! In my Basic Grey stash I found this lovely sheet of paper from the Stella Ruby collection. And it was orange and black. I don't think that it looks like a Halloween card at all. If fact I'm very happy with the outcome.
I have two more cards to make this week. 2 masculine cards for birthdays. Check back in a day or two for my progress on these! I've got a busy week. Thursday is the Graduation ceremony, and Saturday is the party for the family, small, we'll only be 50! LOL!
