Todays cards were made for the Stamping 411 challenge and the coffee diva color challenge.
Woo Hoo, I combined two in one!!!
I really liked this layout. It is simple yet right down my alley.
I made the card below first. And wow, it was way to busy for me. So I made another attempt and like the second card much better! Its hard to see but I used the platinum shimmer paints in alcohol to give the shimmer to the basic grey card stock. (put 2oz of 70% alcohol in a small sray bottle add about 6 drops of platinum paint and shake well)
