Basic Grey DT

We have a Colour Combo at Basic Grey this week chosen by little me. Idiot little me who then struggled to find any turquoise/aqua papers - eeeek!!  I love this colour so much I used them all up but fortunately managed to find the remains of an odd piece of 12"x12" cs called Patchouli from the Romany range. 

I decided I'm fed up with square cards  (fed up with everything this week - fed up with myself truth be known) - anyway I used the Spellbinders Curved rectangles for the base of my card and the various layers. The cream layer I've embossed with the Provocraft Textile folder.  Tilda in Tulle skirt is coloured with Copics, her petticoats and hair bows glittered with Stardust Stickles and sat on some ribbon from stash (I remembered not to have her levitating this time) .I used elements from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Floral Accents to decorate and finished with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and leaves cut with a  CarlaCraft punch. I just wish my brown didn't look so blackish in the photohgraph.

We have a fabulous $25 gift voucher from the one and only Simon Says Stamp so I hope you like my colour choice and that you join us this week at Basic Grey - I look forward to see what you create with it.

hugs all

Perhaps i should just steer well clear of you this week - sounds like you are going from bad t worse. Not your crafting though, between your ooopses and upsets and falling out with life in general you churn out a decent card LOL LOL!! Mind the language now Heather!! ;)xx
