The Shabby Tea Room 5, and more

This is a little teeny card! Not too much to say about it I guess. The challenge at the Shabby Tea Room was "squares", based on a quilt, and it is pretty simple.

I used pink and gray, a combo I think is not a usual one. I remember one of my daughter's friends - when they were just bitty girls about 7 or 8 - told me breathlessly that pink & gray together was the most beautiful combination she could ever imagine.

As I am doing a week long blog hop, I am including this in some other challenges...
Pile it on - no images, just a sentiment
Practical Scrappers - bling/glitter
The Cuttlebug Spot - bling/glitter too !
