I am so getting hooked with the Basic Gray color lately and look at our challenge colors for today at Create with Connie & Mary:

Basic Gray was a color that just took up space on my paper rack for many years but now has become so popular. I even inked up a Tea Lace Doily with Basic Gray Ink using my Brayer:

I created 3 banners, one in Pool Party from the In Color Paper Pack, the 2nd using Whisper White Cardstock and stamping "Mother" from the Amazing Family Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink and finally, a 3rd larger banner using the same DSP pack:

My flower looks great with 4 layers all glued together with Stampin' Dimensionals and topped with a Silver Basics Designer Button adorned with a tiny bow from the Calypso Coral Baker's Twine. Here are the supplies I used listed below.
