Ever since I saw the theme of this weeks theme at Less is more challenge this morning, I have found myself  singing an 80's song, all together now lol! 

"Aaaahhhh,aaahhhhh, we fade to grey, fade to grey"

I can't really remember the rest of the words but to be honest, even though I quite liked the hit at the at the time, 
today it has really got on my pip!
So, I thought I'd make a card for the challenge, couldn't do it, I mucked around, embossing, cutting, punching, stamping, adding eyelettes, you name it, I gave it a go, have to say that the ridiculous, so not my style card is fit for nothing but the bin and that's where it will go later!
I gave up, ate my tea, sulked a bit and returned to my cabin to tidy, there, on my bench was the perfect image for the job, I'm really giving the "Leopard Killer Heels" digi a lot of use at the mo, I've already made one card today using it, 
so with this one it makes two!

How cool it looks coloured in grey,
Copic W3 and W5 to be precise!

I even found that I had the most perfect Swarovski Black diamond Crystals to  
add that touch of bling!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
LIM127, Shades of grey,
CCC13, Stitch,
TTCRD, Anything goes,
MIM147, Anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by,

One man on a lonely platform
One case sitting by his side
Two eyes staring cold and silent
Shows fear as he turns to hide

This is a great card and it looks super in grey. I find comfort knowing others struggle with designs like I do. Even those who seem to be masters at clean and simple say they make several attempts at a card. You would think cas means you whip it out in ten minutes. Ha ha.
