Love with Lavender &Gray


The challenge at Joans Garden this week is;
Create a Valentine in "non-traditional" colors

Use some kind of lace

Use a flower - rose if possible

Use a key - optional

I saw a card on one of my blog hops this past week that I thought was lavender and gray. Given the challenge I thought that would be perfect colors. I went to my PC Crafter digital files because I knew I had paper in there with keys on it, printed in lavender and hunted for a companion paper I could print in gray.
I went back to check out the card and found out it was really coco and lavender. I think lavender & gray is still non-traditional. I was able to find a rose and lace to match my lavender. My sentiment is from JustRite's Romantic Sentiments.
I hope you are having a fun weekend.
Colleen
