Basic Grey Week 16 - Tutti Frutti........

Good morning everyone!

Hope you're enjoying the start of your weekend? It's a bit rainy but I'm not planning to go out so that's fine.

This is my DT card for the latest Basic Grey Challenge and this week's theme is 'Tutti Frutti'....... so think fruit! Well I actually took the title at face value and came up with the idea of ice cream, which does of course come in fruity flavours (strawberry in this case) and so that's how my card came together. When you hop over you'll see that my very talented teamies have created some amazing cards and shown you just how many Basic Grey papers work beautifully with this theme.

I used papers from the Cupcake range (haven't worked with these for ages) and my image is one of last Summer's Magnolia stamps. Do you see I even managed to use my Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch to create a border? I had a brainwave that the drips might work as melting icecream! The flowers are Prima and I created the sentiment on my PC.

I hope you can join us at Basic Grey for Tutti Frutti fun this week and don't forgot to check out the cards my teamies have made in more detail...........

Well enjoy your weekend peeps and I'll catch you all later ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
