Basic Grey Challenge #21 - Let's Mix It Up

This week's challenge at Basic Grey is Mix and Match. Mix and match from different Basic Grey collections in your creation, it can be as many collections as you wish but no less than 2, for eg Blush + Sugared Infuse + Wassail + Boxer I used Ambrosia (the stripe) Boxer (the backing paper) and Archaic (the patterned stripe) I cut the bp from corner to corner and stitched it onto brown coredinations card. I use the cuttlebug labels die to cut the other two papers and set them at angles. I then cut oval nesties, stamped a swirl around the edge of the white added some Petaloo flowers and a gem. I finished it off with the ribbon. I used the same basic layout on the inside and will stamp a sentiment when I decide what it will be used for - I suspect a Mothers Day card.

Materials BC - Coredinations : Papers - Basic Grey - Ambrosia, Archaic and Bloxer : Cuttlebug - Labels 1 and oval Nestabilities : Stamp - Basic Grey - Boxer : Flowers - Petaloo : Rest from stash
