50 shades of what???

Gray... No, not the movie or the book series but the challenge for Less is More: Grey and Pink color challenge.  I have been throwing this around in my head since I saw the challenge. Do I want to use elephants, clouds, or our weather: No, No, and No.

"Less is More"

Meanwhile here in the US they have been promoting the movie '50 Shades of Gray' and I thought 'Yes I got it' perfect for the color challenge and adds just enough 'heat' and it is very simple in design. So then you ask what is written in the card.... Well.... missy, that is none of your business.  LOL!

First took strips of different shades of gray paper and pieced them together to create the border.  Die cut the numbers from the border adhered them on a couple of the same number die cuts to create a 3D effect. Printed out the sentiment and added a light pink heart to complete the color challenge.. Well here it is!!

Card Size: 5.5" x 4.25"
The little pink heart perfect for the sentiment.
I have seen this techinque used all over the internet.
So I thought I would try it. 
I guess I could challenge everyone to think of 50+ reasons why you love that someone special in your life and then put it to paper, cut them into little stripes, and present these little love notes in a jar.. Simple and cheap! No need for roses..

Stay warm if you are in the north and for you all in the south please send some heat our way.. I'm FREEZING!!

Take care all,
Shawna
