Basic Grey challenge (Wassail papers)

Shapes is the brief for this weeks Basic Grey challenge. When I first saw this I thought Hmmm.............. I'm not sure about this one. I ended up thoroughtly enjoying it. I manage to get a square, circle, rectangle and several triangles into this. I watercoloured the image, cut it out and matted and layered it onto a rectangle. This is the second time I have used this image (Sarah Kay - Joy of Giving) and found it much easier this time. I wasn't sure about the ribbon but felt the card definitely needed something, then it was bottom heavy so I added a ribbon to the top, then the sides looked bare so I added two triangles with small square brads. At this point I had to tell myself to STOP. I think I can safely say this card created itself.
