A Little Less Grey

I love the beautiful clean lines of cards that fall into the category of "less is more", and have been trying to create some of them recently.  I start out ok but am never happy with them and so they end up in the pile of UFO's (unfinished objects). 

I have been stalking  enjoying Jen Nelson's cards for some time, and decided to try the challenge at "Less is More" where the theme is Shades of Grey.  Probably not such a good one for me to start with, but at least it took me less time to think about colours.
Stamp:  Party Animals by Annabelle Stamps
Card:   SU Whisper White
Designer paper:  SU  Howlstooth and Scaringbone
Ink:   Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics C3 and C5
Tools:   Big shot; Framelits Labels
Yes, it definitely is Whisper White cardstock.  Photography is clearly not a skill I have mastered, but today I had more trouble than usual. 
I am looking forward to seeing all the other cards and hopefully I will pick up some pointers. 
Thanks for the challenge Chrissie.

That cat looks so smug!
