Basic Grey Challenge



I have used the great sketch on the BG challenge blog to make this card.
We are going to my BIL retirement and 65th Birthday party tomorrow...again I have put off making the card until the last minute I love the BG papers for men's cards these are from the boxer pad I think I will need to buy another one before they are discontinued. The image is from WOJ and the card is DCWV.

This card is for both occasions so the sentiment which is also WOJ seemed appropriate. The silver frame is from the SU hodgepodge hardware box I am loving this set.

We were sent home from work at 12 noon today because there were so few of us who had made it into the office so this was a great opportunity to make this card, I think it was just as well as this card has been a labour of love today why is it some cards are just like that!!

Thanks for looking

Sue :o)
