I couldn’t get this SCS color combination challenge out of my head… I had to make a card with Crushed Gray Burgundy. The extra twist of the challenge was to use text in ways other than the sentiment, so I stamped the base of the card multiple times with the script image from the Charming set. The layout was inspired by this week’s CAS challenge, a sketch by kmahany. The rest is pretty self-explanatory.

Thanks for stopping by!
