I'm so pretty grey monochromatic card

I made a card for the moxie fab tuesday trigger this week. I always think that I am going to do it, and I always end up not getting time. This time I did! I also combined it with the Grey is the new black challenge.

This is the trigger: Im so pretty



















and here is my card. I think it's pretty easy to see how I was inspired. I combined this trigger with the 'grey is the new black challenge' also from the movie fab blog, and with the monochromatic card challenge from the nook's virtual crop. I didn't have grey flowers, so I took the brand new white ones that I bought today at joann's, I think the trim that I cut these from is simplicity brand. EVERYONE has these ribbon trims now! Anyway, I had 2/3 of a yard and guess how many flowers were on that? 9 - just enough! I used what was left of my grey smooch spritz. I love how these turned out though! they aren't just grey, they are sparkly too! I also used some coredinations cardstock, which I embossed and sanded. Got that at joann 6 for 96c ! can you believe that?! and that silver trim is Webster's Pages.
