Double D - When Skies are Gray

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D the theme is WHEN SKIES ARE GRAY.  Add some gray and use patterns, textures, objects from board.  Just look at this beautiful Mood Board provided for our inspiration:

And here's my card:
I happen to love different shades of gray together, so this was a great challenge for me. I used different background papers to pick up the textures and designs in the mood board, and that beautiful bloom is from the Altenew Peony Dream 3-D Die Set.  I think this image speaks for itself.

Here are the Ingredients:
Recollections Storm Clouds Card Stock in Grays
GKD Black Onyx Card Stock
Altenew Peony Dreams 3-D Die Set
Colorbök Natural Expressions Patterned Paper 
SU Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set for Greeting
Judy Dots

Please come on over to the Double D Blog to see what the other designers have created. And if you play along you could win this awesome prize!

 Thanks so much for stopping by, I adore your comments. 
I hope you are having a wonderful, crafty week!!
