Have a look at the delicious Basic Grey Challenge for this fortnight! We are challenged to make a card using at least one Basic Grey item and these colours:
Well my first thought was pink and yellow - oh no! That's my least favourite colour combination that there is. But the more I looked through my stash and put papers and colours together, the happier I became. And I think I've just created one of my favourite ever cards.
The patterned paper is from BG's Scarlet Letter, and the rest of the papers are scraps which I now don't know where they came from. I've only just got the stamp from Whiff of Joy: Willow from the Summer '09 collection, coloured in with my new Copics. And yes, after that little splurge I'm putting myself on a spending hold for a while. Copics are not cheap! The flowers are Prima, and I used Diamond Stickles to glitter it up a bit. The ribbon is from our local dollar store. It's a shame this is a random prize draw, because if it were for merit, I really think I'd have a good chance of winning! Ah well.
What do you think? You like? (As they say around here!)
