Basic Grey Challenge 14 - Oh So Charming

I am so thrilled, and honoured to be accepted as a DT member for Basic Grey Challenges, and am really looking forward to working with the other extremely talented member of the team.
"For this weeks challenge we would like to see some charms on your creations, you can have as many as you like, and of course not forgetting to use at least 1 item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creations. And for your wonderful efforts, one lucky person will win this fabby prize which has been kindly sponsored by Crafty Krafts"
This is my first card as a Design team member and I knew exactly what I wanted to do as soon as I was given the brief. I made myself a 'phone charm sometime ago and a friend, as soon as she saw it said "Ooh, I want one", So I have made her one and attached it to a birthday card.
I used the beautiful Eva papers and attached the charm to a ribbon at the top, The sentiment behind the charm is computer generated and attached to oval cut nesties. The Birthday greeting is a die cut from stash and layered onto a die cut from the cuttlebug alphabet set Harmony. The flowers are frin Prima and the brad and spacer from stash.
