Basic Grey & a Sneak Peek!!

Thank you to everyone who joined in with our Shabby Chic challenge at Basic Grey. Your entries were all absolutely fabulous and we really enjoyed looking at them all.

Our next challenge for you all is a lovely colour combo which actually features in a lot of BasicGrey papers HOT PINK, LIME GREEN and BROWN/KRAFT.

The fabulous Debbie Dolphin is joining us again for our challenge although unfortunately this is her last challenge with us. We would like to say a huge thank you to Debbie for joining us, it has been lovely working with you and thanks for sharing your amazing creations.

Now you who know me know I don't do 'hot' colours so I really struggled with this one and these colours are as good as it gets for me!! The papers I've used are the Kraft, Lily Kate and Eva. My image is one of the new, soon to be released (14th June) Lili of the Valley summer girls and this one is Emma on Swing, so adorable to colour!! The sentiment is one of the original Lili of the Valley ones.
The flowers are mainly Wild Orchid crafts with a few from my stash along with the ribbon which is also from stash.

I think this card qualifies for the following challenges
Totally Gorgeous - Flower Power
Totally Papercrafts  - Summer

I love that frame& your punched corners. Those pins really add something & the twirled ribbon is super. She has such character I must admit & looks as if she is all dressed up in her Sunday Best & waiting for Mum & Dad to be ready to set off for a visit to Grandma on her birthday. You'll turn me into a story-teller yet!
