This is week six of Colour Creations Blog Hop, and the colour featured this week is Basic Gray. From now on, we will working our way alphabetically through the colours with Bermuda Bay coming next week.

  • Christmas Whimsy card kit

Basic Gray is a slightly challenging colour and I was determined not to turn to a masculine card for this round, although Nature's Prints in another colour choice could easily suit a male. Polished Pink and Parakeet Party contrast vibrantly against the Basic Gray.

The fern embossing folder is part of the Sun Prints Suite, (p90-91) with lovely texture. Embellishments include the In Color opal rounds, a piece of Polished Pink ribbon. and some frayed White Frayed Ribbon.

  1. I love your card Rachel and I thought the same thing that Basic Gray was a challenging colour to use. I love your pop of polished pink and parakeet party and the font on the thank you is just perfect! I love it!

  2. Love the contrast of the Polished Pink and Parakeet Party against the Basic Gray on your lovely card, Rachel.

  3. Fabulous colours and the electric green and pink pops in your card Rachel. I love how you have cropped the sentiment label.

  4. Oh, lovely! I clearly need to take a closer look at Polished Pink; it's a really pretty colour to use with grey. LOVE Parakeet Party with Basic Gray, and I am particularly taken with the way you've stamped the sentiment label, Rachel.

  5. These colours are gorgeous together - and I have GOT to put that embossing folder on my next shop!! Kathryn R

  6. So Lovely Rachel, I so love Pink and Gray together. they work so well.

  7. Yes, a beautiful vibrant card, Rachel. That TIEF looks amazing and I love how you cropped the bottom of the circle with the sentiment!
