Double D, When Skies Are Gray

Good Morning! 

Time for another fantastic Challenge over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Are you ready for some inspiration?!?!

Then check this out!

So many ideas!

Here's what I came up with.

I loved all of the shades of gray, which is odd because I don't think I ever use much of it in card making.  I was drawn to the tea cups and coffee mugs.  Mine are from a Cameo Cut.  I cut once from a very thick card stock, something close to chipboard and then in 3 different Designer Papers.  2 with patterns and the 3rd I added some texture using a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder....but used the DE-bossed side.  I made sure one was topped with that sweet little open heart.  So CUTE!  They are all popped up on Foam Dots.

MFT Notched Border dies.
Spellbinders Label 4 die.
Memory Box Homespun Heart die.
Power Poppy Short Stacks stamp set.
Dove Gray ink.
Thin Silver Ribbon.
Rhinestone Flourish.
Foam Dots.

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!  
You'll be glad you did as there is always a pretty prize up for grabs! 
Here is the FAB prize for this Challenge:
