Basic Grey Week 19 - Photo Inspiration......

Good morning folks!
It's that time again...... another Basic Grey Challenge and we have a gorgeous picture for you to use as inspiration this week..... isn't it sweet? There's so much to draw from...... colours, shapes, accessories, patterns..... I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

I was drawn to that fab bunting in the picture and so that became a major feature of my card. Now it isn't very often I struggle to use Basic Grey papers but I have to admit I haven't felt inclined to dip into the Boxer collection very much.... until now that is..... the papers were perfect for my bunting! The background papers are from the Recess collection which just goes to show once again how easy it is to mix and match the ranges.

The sweet image I used is a Peachy Keen stamp and you can get hold of them here. I thought it was the perfect image to tie in with the theme of a child's room and in fact this card is being sent to my friend's little girl who has just gone into hospital to have her tonsils removed..... not nice at the age of 4!!!

Well I do hope you can join in with the challenge this week as Simon Says are very generously sponsoring us once again...... and whatever you're up to over the Bank Holiday weekend, hope you have lots of fun ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
