Basic Grey DT - a Colour Combo

We have a fabulous colour combination for you at Basic Grey this week.



The prize this week is from Simon Says and is a 12"x12" pack of the new Kioshi papers - can't tell you how jealous I am that you have the chance to win these beautiful papers.


I use papers from Lime Rikey - the blue, and Origins - the yellow/gold. This gorgeous Sugar Nellie image called Raven  is coloured with distress inks and cut with the Spellbinders label dies 13,  the corners and border with EK Success punches. I used Woodware Cherry Blossom punches for the flower and stamen. The ribbon and leaves are fom my stash. 

Oooops - I've just noticed a hair across the corner of the white by Raven's head, just checked it's not on the card itself  and there's also slight bleeding on the edge of her coat. I just wish camera's didn't pick up all ones little faults.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, it looks like it's going to be 
another fabulous day here when the mist lifts.
