Basic Grey challenges re-opening DT card

For our re-opening we have a fabulous sketch by the amazingly talented Tara...... thanks hun - I really enjoyed using this sketch and will certainly be using it again. Our challenges are now fortnightly which gives you all extra time to enter and prizes will be monthly (sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp store). Five entries will be chosen at random and entered into the monthly prize draw.

I made the card before I left the UK and finished it once I had arrived here. The Gorjuss girl is coloured with Copics and I used the fabulous Boxer papers. I did push a few flowers into my suitcase but was stuck for leaves. No - problem I cut the holly leaves from a Christmas decoration and trimmed them to size and shape. The sentiment is Papermania and the flowers, ribbon and pearls from my stash.

I would like to thank you all for your best wishes and lovely comments whilst I have been 'Missing in Action'....... they really have kept me going and some reduced me to tears - you are all so lovely and hopefully I will be round visiting you all in the next couple of weeks.

I had written something like the following under my husband's e-mail -- and realized in time you would wonder who the heck is abrigo2: Heather, you amaze me -- nothing can stop you from making your fabby cards. This one is certainly a prize winner. The colors are gorgeous and remind me of a soft woodsy scene and you make me want this sweet dollie too! BTW your blog side bar decor is great too. Hugs, etc, Martha Kay, aka, theneon

Hello Heather,
Thank you for the comment you so kindly left on my blog. How nice to "meet" another English holistic therapist (although I don't practise in Singapore) through an American craft site!
You asked about the punch. It's made by Carla Craft: "Macaron" from the Florence Muret collection. They're fantastic punches because you can use them for corners, circles or borders by adjusting the paper holders. It's my favourite. Here's a link:

I love your card! The colours are my favourite autumn colours - yours, Kim's and Jo's really pressed my buttons!
Well you have another follower. LOL
