Basic Grey Challenge 36 - Flower Power......


Good morning everyone!

Welcome to a new challenge over at Basic Grey where we have the theme of Flower Power this week.... nice and easy right? And we are still continuing with our Design Team call for the next fortnight too, so hopefully this week's challenge will encourage you to apply! We're having so much fun looking at all the entries so far and it's going to be an impossible task choosing from the vast array of talent!!

I guess my card is more simple than those I've made already this week...... I did manage to hold back on the embellies a touch this time, lol! My papers are from the gorgeous Wisteria range and sadly I'm running low now, but I love the soft, muted tones of these particular papers I've chosen.


I tried to make it look like Tilda was running through a bed of flowers and maybe catching some from a branch above? And the sweet sentiments are from a Melissa Frances rub-on sheet.

Well that's all from me.... I hope you'll hop over and see what my lovely teamies have created for our challenge today and have fun getting floral!

I'm off to paint the bathroom now, groan..... I don't like decorating but I want to get it done as a surprise for my hubby whilst he's out at work ;o) There will be a reward for me at the end of the day though as we're off on a night out with a group of friends to celebrate a couple of birthdays..... a few drinks to begin with and then a Chinese banquet to finish the night off in style ;o)

Toodles for now and have a fab weekend!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Hello you!! love your gorgeous card, such a fabulous colour scheme with the beautiful Wisteria papers. The soft gentle colouring of Tilda is perfect and the scattering of flowers fantastic.
Good luck with your decorating and have a fantastic night out - not too much to drink - you don't want a hangover tomorrow!!

Your idea works beautifully on this card Tara - Tilda definitely looks like she's running through a field of flowers! The concept is lovely! And I love her flower headband - what a sweet touch! Enjoy your night out!
