Basic Grey Challenge 18 - A Colour Combo......

Welcome to another Basic Grey Challenge where we have a gorgeous colour combo for you this week. You might think this is quite a difficult combo to work with..... if I'm honest I did at first. But then when I started to look through my Basic Grey papers I realised there were some really yummy prints and shades.

My papers are a real mixture and come from the Two Scoops, Granola and Recess ranges..... just goes to show how much you can mix and match with Basic Grey! As it's my hubby's birthday on Sunday I decided to make a male card and used one of the Ian images from The Greetings Farm. Do you like the lips on the card? I didn't smother my mouth in lipstick..... I had a stamp set with lips in it, lol! I picked up the scrabble tiles from my local craft store which is sadly closing down and created the sentiment to reflect the word I always use when referring to him.

I hope my teamies will give you all the inspiration you need to take part in the challenge this week, as they've pulled out all the stops to give you amazing creations. Here are the links so you can visit them all:
