Color Challenge at Sunday Stamps, Grey + White Sympathy Card & my #1 Christmas Card in July

Hallo my Blogland friend, we meet again on Sunday at our brand new challenge at Sunday Stamps  this time we have a color challenge:

I have not much ink with grey color...also I choose my grey paper in two different tones, and with the light grey  paper I put my stencil from Artplorations (Stamplorations Product) named Old Rose Prints, and sponged the grey ink on it. 

I also sponged the stencil with Versamark Clear ink and gave white embossing powder and embossed it. I fussy cut the flower and add at the edge of the sentiment.

I think the grey color is ok for a sympathy card also I choose that sentiment.

Hope I can inspired you to join our colour challenge this time :)

Challenges for my card are:

Sister Act Challenge #114: Anything Goes (sdh a.p.)

Tuesday Throwdown #252: No Patterned paper

I also made this card for Christmas. I look at Catch The Bug Challenge, they have Christmas in July Challenge....for day One they have theme Jingle All The Way. I choose the Image from Bugaboo Store named Mini Set - Christmas Tag. I made this CAS Christmas card using Kraft Paper. I colored the Bell with red copic marker and gold Kuretaki Gansai Tambi. The Sentiment is from Hero Arts.
