For this fortnights Challenge at Basic Grey we would like you to use the following Recipe :)

4 Different Types of Embellishments
(You can have as many of each type as you wish, as long as there are 4 different kinds, for example Ribbon, Pearls, Flowers, Charms etc etc)

3 Different Patterned Papers
(You can have as many plain matting papers as you wish, just as long as there are 3 patterned papers)

1-2 Images and/or 1-2 Sentiments
(You can choose to have up to 2 in either of these, or even both if you wish)

Don't forget though, to be eligible to win the fab prize for this challenge you MUST use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation, it would also be helpful if you could state on your post what that item is, makes it easier for us you see :)

I decided to use this beautiful image be Ellusive Images which I coloured with Copics. I'm not very good at putting multi-patterned papers together so took absolutely ages sorting out my layout, once done I then discovered my image to be far larger than I'd thought and had to re-arrange the layout - derr..........
The panel at the left is cut with a Tim Holtz alteration die and is in the BG paper Dasher, the check on the bottom layer is Infuse and the stripe is Dasher and the plain is Figgy Pudding.
My embellishements are the ribbon, the charm, the leaves and the flower (Can't for the life in me remember where I put my poinsettias - NB - must stop tidying up and re-arranging my stash!!!) I don't like the gold leaves and will ease them off and replace them with - I don't know - perhaps green ones.
The sentiment is from the LOTV set, cut with nesties and edged with gold Stickles.
I know my photograph is crooked but the image looks crooked to me, in fact the church looks a little like the leaning tower of Pisa - shall have to try and put that right as well - this will probably take me longer than it did to make the card LOL.

Hope you all have a brilliant weekend and enjoy the snow if you have it.

You have me in stitches with your humourous candidness - thing is I do KNOW......& it is fatal to tidy.......Stay warm as it must be very cold where you are. I actually have this stamp set - it's a joy but haven't had time to play about yet, but I love what you have done with it.
