Gray

CASsology have this cue
 
 
I'm sharing a card which I found recently. It was made many moons ago when I first started card making and found recently when I was tidying out my craft room.
 
 
It is not the greatest effort but I loved making them. At that time I only really did stamps. The perch and borders when done with a black felt tipped pen.
