Going Grey with Scrap- Creations

Morning friends! Welcome to another week of Going Grey Challenges with Scrap-Creations. This week it was an extra special privilege to get to work with our sponsor's, Kenny K, digi images and the images are SO cute! Check them out HERE.

You know I have to have a boy image and you know that we love football at our house so what other image could I possibly have chosen? Once I printed the image the size I wanted I started to think how I was going to color it and what Basic Grey paper I was going to use and that is the exact moment I thought I had made a mistake on my choice of image. Basic Grey, with a few exceptions, doesn't really make a lot of male friendly paper so I was starting to panic. Do, what I did is take out each pad of paper separately and look through the different patterns. I found this stripe and what ever you would call the other pattern in the Marrakesh paper pad. I kinda thought the round elements could look like stadium lights...yes, no? Maybe? Anyway, I made the sentiment with a JustRite stamper and put my football player into a practice uniform. I actually really like this card!

Now I know you want to join in on this challenge so head on over to Kristen's blog HERE to find all the information!

Have fun!
