Basic Grey # 25 - A Sketch

Morning to you all!

This week over at Basic Grey we have been asked to create a card using the wonderful sketch Martine has provided. I think you'll find all the inspiration you need when you visit and take a look at the amazing creations from my fellow Design Team members - the papers they've chosen to work with are so scrummy this week!

For my card I flipped the sketch sideways and inked up the gorgeous Oakley available as part of the new WOJ Springtime range. I used papers from the Cupcake range and accessorised with some die cut leaves and grass.

Image - Whiff of Joy
Sentiment - Penny Black
Accessory Stamp - Kars
Papers - Basic Grey Cupcake
Die - Sizzix Leaves, QuicKutz Grass, QuicKutz Corner
Colouring - ProMarkers
Embellishments - Brads and Lace Ribbon from my stash

Have a lovely weekend peeps and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow over at Colour Create!

TTFN and TFL xx
