Basic Grey 28 - Paper Piecing, And A DT Call......


Good morning!

Sorry to be so incredibly late with my Basic Grey card....... life took over in a big way this weekend and blogging didn't get a look in!!!! Well it should be like that sometimes, right? Family comes first at the end of the day!

Before I give you some details about my card, can I just give a shout for our Basic Grey DT call..... we don't have one very often and it's exciting to think that four more crafters will be joining our merry little team very soon! So don't be shy..... if you love all things Basic Grey you can find out more right here.

Okay then, the challenge over at Basic Grey this week is to include some paper piecing on your design. Hopefully my card shows that you needn't just be confined to your image with this technique, as I chose to paper piece some flowers instead!

I've used brand new papers from the Pyrus range and a Wild Sprout image from The Greetings Farm. I also had great fun creating an embossed panel with one of my Cuttlebug folders and then added a sweet sentiment, plus some yummy lace and pins sent to me in a RAK by my lovely friend Annika.

So hopefully you'll be joining us for this fortnight's challenge and, in the meantime, have a fabby day!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Stunning card and I like how you used the paper piecing for the embellishments rather than the main image
