Basic Grey Challenge # 34 - Anthea's Sketch























Good morning everyone and welcome to the weekend!

Here is my card for this week's Basic Grey Challenge, based on a gorgeous sketch by our lovely Anthea. Those of you out there who enjoy working with sketches (and let's face it, who doesn't?) should find this one an absolute dream. All you have to do is use something Basic Grey on your project. I have so many papers now that I wasn't sure where to start. It's always tempting to go with the newest ranges, but something drew me to the Infuse papers as I love the rich colours and beautiful floral design. I love to see which papers my teamies have chosen each week as, amazingly, we seem to choose different ranges most of the time! I hope you can visit the blogs of all the other girlies on the team, as their cards are just amazing!

For those of you who left a comment on my last card, thanks for your opinions regarding the sentiment. I have decided to play it safe (not like me really) and give hubster's aunt the Penny Black card I made at the beginning of the week. I would hate to offend anyone with my warped sense of humour, lol! It's lovely to get your thoughts though and I knew you'd help me make the right decision, so thank you ;o)

Materials:
Image - Magnolia
Sentiment - Kolette Hall
Papers - Basic Grey Infuse
Colouring - Copics
Punch - Woodware Flower
Embossing - Cuttlebug Folder
Embellishments - Felt leaf strip and sticky pearls from stash

Hope you enjoy your weekend - I'll be back tomorrow with a new Colour Create challenge.
