Basic Grey Week 38 - Heather's Sketch.....


Good morning everyone and welcome to another Basic Grey Challenge! We had a bumper fortnight with our 'hearts' challenge so a huge thank you to everyone that took the time to enter the last challenge!


This week we are welcoming lots of new teamies to the fold after having a really successful DT call, so I hope you'll be able to hop over and check out their amazing talent!! And the lovely Heather has provided us with a beautiful sketch to play with so dig out all your Basic Grey goodies and join in the fun!


For my card this week I dug out an old paper pad called Stella Ruby which is full of vibrant, floral designs. And I chose a sweet little Penny Black image as my centrepiece which was nice and easy to colour! I cut out part of the design paper to create the tumbling flowers and added a few punched leaves. And the tied raffia gives it a nice country feel I think.

I'm entering the following challenges with my card:

Allsorts - Inspired by Nature

Charisma - Spring Has Sprung

Crafts and Me - Spread Your Wings

Creative Card Crew - Friendship

Let's Ink It Up - Romance

I'm off to get my son ready for cricket nets now so I'll catch you later........ have a fun weekend!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
