Here is my take on the challenge.

I was inspired by the grey and white tones of the inspiration board.  I used the Mudra Mendhika stamp set.  I wanted something long and swirly to create a border for the corner of the card.  I fussy cut around the shape ( while silently praising matching dies!!!)  When I added the grey to the card, it looked a little boring so I just scored a few lines to create the pattern and I like the the effect.  I used the Distress Ink hickory smoke which softens the card.  I had intended to make this a sympathy card, but I was watching the football and my "peace and comfort" stamp either crossed over the "Y" or touched my border!! So I  scoured all my stamps for something appropriate and used the add on from the Many Mandalas Stamp Set.

Craft room has had it's first coat of paint and new lights and DH had stepped up with the planning!! He has taped out the desk and shelves and electrical outlets! I'm just so excited!

thank you for popping in and now off to the gorgeous Ann's blog xx
