  5. Thanks for the challenge. The DT cards are amazing. Mind you how can a person not make a great card when Basic Grey papers are involved. Every time there is a new set out I am all excited to get one home and leaf through it. Before, normally, I file it away in the dark to protect it from passing paper thieves! LOL, seriously though the papers all gel so beatifully together.
