CARDS Blog Challenge: January 2013

I've seen a few people playing with these colours and I totally adore them so I thought I would give this challenge a go.  It can be found over at the Create Blog
I made a very CAS card using stamps from the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit of the Month.  I am also going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which is "Something New", in this case it's the SSS stamp set I have used.
Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Shabby Shutters distress ink; Heavenly Blue dye ink (CTMH); Soft Granite hadow ink (HA)
Stamps: Music 2 My Ears (SSS); IB-Flowers 3 (MFT)
Other: Washi Tape (Freckled Fawn)

I think it was the fact that I remembered that I had this lovely soft grey Washi Tape that inspired me to make this card, other than the fact that I love this colour combination!

Why don't you go and play?!  I think you have until the 14th to submit a card.

Have a fabulous day!
