Basic Grey DT

We have a fabulous photograph as inspiration for you this week at Basic Grey.
Just look at those beautiful colours. The prize this week is from the gorgeous Nook and Pantry range.




My card turned out nothing like I'd intended - yet again,  I'm really struggling to get into any sort of routine and crafting mood. I intended to keep this card very clean and simple - failed!!



I stamped a background to match the wallpaper on the photograph using stamps from the Basic Grey Boxer set, then I proceeded to cover the larger part of it up with a multitude for details which I intended NOT to. The papers are from Basic Grey's Lime Rickey and Offbeat pads. the frame cut with curved rectanges and the WOJ image coloured with Copics and anchored with the Shapeabilities fancy tags. I cut the corners with the EK Success corner punch, the leaves with the Sizzix leaf and branch die, the border with the MS punch and finished it with flowers, brads and pearls from stash.
