Basic Grey Challenge # 29



Another Basic Grey Challenge greets us this morning and it's perfectly timed for the Easter holidays! The theme is Easter/Spring and the Design Team have come up with some stunning creations, they really are so pretty! I think with the weather we've been having this week and all the pink blossom and daffodils everywhere it makes you really happy to be alive! I really hope you'll get the chance to join in with this week's challenge.

For my card I've taken a beautiful quote which I couldn't wait to use and teamed it with Basic Grey Offbeat papers. I got a chance to use the lovely green felt border ribbon too which I bought a couple of weeks ago, although unfortunately I'm not sure who makes it! I really love these colours and the card was lots of fun to make ;o)



Materials:
Image - Magnolia
Sentiment - Computer generated
Butterfly and Chick Images - Daisy and Dandelion Set
Papers - Basic Grey Offbeat
Flowers - Prima
Colouring - ProMarkers
Embellishments - Brads and Ribbon from my stash

I hope you have a brilliant weekend and Easter break to come. Thanks so much for stopping by!

'ello, 'ello, 'ello I finally made it to you - phew ! What a fantastic card again this week Tara and I love the quote you have used. These BG papers are quite hard to use really, a bit too much for my liking but you have put them together beautifully and they look fantastic. I shall remember this combo for future reference !

Enjoy your week and I'll speak to you very soon hunny bunny !

Hugs,
