Basic Grey # 29 - Tara G's Sketch......


Good morning everyone!

I'm so pleased you stopped by today because it's time for another Basic Grey Challenge and my wonderful teamie Tara G has provided us with a perfect sketch which I'm sure you'll enjoy playing with! The thing I love when we all make our cards for the challenge is that everyone's interpretation is so different. And that's how it's supposed to be really, because the sketch is there for a guide and everyone can then add something individual to it.

As always, Simon Says Stamp are generously giving us $25 to give to the winner, so please join in and show us your stunning creations..... oh and don't forget that applications for our DT call must be in today!! Good luck!!!


I used one of Magnolia's older Halloween images for my card and chose the fabulous Basic Grey Eerie papers to work with. So the traditional mix of purple, green and orange evolved..... you wouldn't normally dream of putting these together would you, but somehow they just work at this time of year! I added an embossed panel with a Pumpkin cuttlebug folder and some webbed edging with a Martha Stewart punch, and finally a Sizzix Bigz die was used to create the swirls. And for once my camera managed to pick up some Stickles sparkle on Tilda's clothes...... YAY!!

I'm entering my card into the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge where the latest theme is Halloween.

Well have a fabulous weekend everyone and don't forget about my candy will you.... only two days left!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
