Going Grey with Scrap- Creations

Happy Tuesday all! I hope you had a wonderful start to your week!

Today is the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations day! We are sponsored by Fred She Said and I'm telling ya you should go check out the images as they are super cute! I did something with today's card that I've never done since I've started making cards. I used a pre-colored image. I love to color but I just couldn't get over how beautiful the colors were in the pre-colored image so I went with it. I chose to highlight the green and yellow in the coat and leaves with my other colors but I did forget one vital thing...can you guess what? First person that guesses correctly gets a little prize from me but I have to tell you...I was really laughing at myself for my mistake! Ladies on the DT don't get to play for this one.

So, you need to head on over to Kristen's blog HERE to check out all of the deets for this challenge and then be sure to check out all of the other DT blogs. They are linked in the right bar of my blog and trust me on this one...they are FABULOUS!

Great card, Lorie! I can see why you went with the colored image. Great colors. I think what you left out was designer paper. I would say Basic Grey but I know you don't need to use Basic Grey anymore. Anyway, love the card and the colors. Now if we could just get the real weather to cooperate! LOL!

Lorie,
I think your card is lovely. I also think being able to use a pre-colored image is fabulous. Your card looks great!

Lorie I love the way your card came out. I too have never used the pre-colored image but I might rethink it after seeing your card. It looks beautiful and I never would have guessed you didn't color it! Wonderful job on the challenge this week!
