Unloved Colors.....

Happy Friday All!
Bianca did pretty well with her extraction yesterday. She did swell a bit & complained of a bit of pain so I gave her some meds.....she was up a few hours later good as new! Thank goodness for that!!

My post for today is featuring colors I rarely use.....Orchid Opulence & Going Gray. Looking in my cabinet, I realized that I have a LOT of these 2 colors so I decided to play around with them to see what I could make. I kept my layout simple and didn't use very many embellishments so the embossed background would shine through. It's pretty simple but I do like it!

Look for more of these posts because there are some other colors that I don't use much either. I hope you've been inspired to pull out your *unloved* cardstock and make something beautiful! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!
TTFN,
Hugs,

Supplies:
Wings of Friendship ss; Orchid Opulence, Going Gray & Basic Black cs; Whisper White Craft & Basic Black ink; Eyelet Border Punch; Big Shot; Texture Plate; Scallop #2 Die; White Gel Pen; Rhinestone Brads

  10. Love this card and the colors. I know what you mean about 'unloved' colors. I tend to go for the same favorites all the time, can't remember when I have used Orchid Opulence and have only started using the gray shades recently.
