Tuesday Jacksonbelle Challenge

Today's Tuesday challenge is Basic Grey.....as much as you can handle! I had F-U-N with this one! Basic Grey Archaic ROCKS (and it was the line that I had the most products in!)
The Rockin' Card.You Rock!
All of the paper (except the black and Mellow Moss) came from my 6x6 Basic Grey Archaic paper pack! The Dino and the Tree came from a 12x12 piece of Archaic as well! "You Rock" is an Archaic Rub-on that I cut to position where I wanted it! I know that I left an empty hole in the middle of the card, but I had spent soo much time cutting out my little critters I was bound and determined to make it work! I decided that MAYBE with the busy paper and all of the layers we wouldn't notice...but now that I've uploaded the picture....the empty spot is screaming "Look at me!...You left me wide out in the open and all nekked!" I guess I could have sponged some ink there or something! Oh well! I was thrilled to find this stitch on my daughter's sewing machine (You know...the coool Hello Kitty One that I LOVE so much!)...I thought the stitch looked a bit archaic! I popped the dino and the tree on pop-dots and then covered them with Crystal Effects so they'd be good and shiny and really stand out! Okay, and I know the "You" is sort of lost in the paper too....but I tried all sorts of positions for the tree, dino, and words...and this really was the best! And now that I've cut the cutest dino out and the best tree....I need to get a whole new piece of this paper just in case I want to make another card like this! Isn't that they way it always is though!?
