Subtle Grunge for DD#70 and TSOT #135

It's been a while since I've participated in a blog challenge but tonight I've created a card to enter into both Dynamic Duos #70 and Try Stampin' On Tuesday #135 .  I've been following both of the challenge blogs for some time and I really like both of them.  Be sure to check them out for weekly inspiration!

This week's Dynamic Duo colour choice is So Saffron and Pistachio Pudding. 
I'll have to admit that at first I was leaning towards a "girly" card with this combo.  But I've been itching to use my brand new "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set and just had to ink it up!  I used the template from Try Stampin' On Tuesday to set this one up. 

Check it out:

So much fun!  I LOVE this set!!!!!  I really like the effect that can be achieved using this I just spilled or threw ink all over my paper.  Honestly, I was surprised at how much I liked this colour combination for this card.   I made this card to give to my neighbours who took care of our house while we were on vacation this summer and I wanted something gender neutral and I like how this card does that.

I finished the card off with a sentiment from the "Six-Sided Sampler" stamp set, linen thread and Natural Trim ribbon.

Stay tuned for more Gorgeous Grunge in the near future.

Happy Stampin!
