Basic Grey Challenge # 24 - Pockets

Hi all!

Great news to tell you all before I show you my card for this week's Basic Grey Challenge - My guest spot for January and February has now come to an end but Martine has asked me to become a permanent member of the Design Team. Woohoo! I am so pleased and would like to thank Martine for her invitation .......... you bet I accept, lol!



So this week we are asked to create a pocket of some sort and I know that you will get oodles of inspiration if you check out what the other girls have created. They are such a talented bunch and it's amazing to see how different the creations all are!




My card has been created to send images to blogging buddies, so I guess you could say it's a wallet card. After I'd made it I did think it looked a bit Autumnal, but never mind - it'll keep!





Materials:
Image - Magnolia
Sentiment - Studio G
Papers - Basic Grey Mellow
Die - QuicKutz Vine
Punch - Leone Em Stamen
Colouring - ProMarkers
Flowers - Flora Doodles
Embellishments - Brads from my stash
Accents - Rangers Glossy Accents

Hope you have enjoyed your Saturday, I have been out shopping all day and now need to get a quick tea! Will be back a little later for a bloghop..... that's if I manage to finish my card for tomorrow's Colour Create Challenge! EEK!!
