My card for the Sunday Stamps challenge to use three neutral colors from the graphic provided.
As I am neutral colors challenged, my card uses, gray, black, white and cream. The stencil was sponged using Memento London Fog ink, Tim Holtz weathered wood and black soot distress inks, then using VersaMark and heat set clear embossing powder over the stencil. The background seemed too white so I lightly sponged with london fog ink. My image is a DRS Designs rubber stamp “Birthday Candle Burst” and layered die cut sentiments are Tim Holtz Sizzix Celebration Words dies. This card is intended for an old friend who’s family is throwing a surprise 80th birthday party.

This is a very nice card! I love how the happy and birthday are white with the wishes black. It’s a pretty contrast and goes well with your background and image.
Thanks, Golda, neutrals are very challenging for me. I need some color.
Perfect neutral card. Love the background and the candle stamp. The recipient will be very impressed.
Thanks so much Gerry. That stamp is an oldie but goodie.

Love this and it is perfectly neutral and beautifully created.
Thanks, Johanna, I’m normally not very good with neutrals as I always want to add some pops of color.
