Basic Grey Week 14 - Colour Combo......



Good morning Peeps!

I'm late with my DT card for this week's Basic Grey Challenge, sorry about that! I had alot going on yesterday and time just slipped away.

We have a fab colour combo to share with you this week of Maroon, Lemon and Pink and I reckon this one is sure to get your creative juices flowing! My teamies have come up trumps as always with some magnificent creations and they've used some very yummy papers! Also, check out the amazing prize on offer, I really want those sentiment stamps all to myself, lol!

I chose to work with a circular shape for my card as I wanted to create something a little bit different from my normal 6x6 safe square! I used papers from the lemonade range and I must admit my lemon is more of a dirty yellow but I think it'll just about pass! I used one of the Tilda beauties from last years Chasing Butterflies collection and added some punched flowers and leaves..... plus I glittered Tilda's wings but I'm not sure you can pick that up from my photo and may need to zoom in.

Finally, I thought I'd leave you with a piccie of what I woke up to this morning..... yet more snow!!! When will it end? Usually in the UK we're beside ourselves with excitement when we see a sprinkling of the white stuff, but this year I think it's more of a shock when it rains, lol!!!

Enjoy a peaceful Sunday ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
