Basic Grey challenge and DT call

It's time for another challenge at Basic Grey and WOW you certainly seemed to like spot and dots, we had an amazing number of absolutely fabulous entries. 

 Our Design Team call, which runs for another fortnight, brought us many wonderful creations to look at also.
If you're entering another card this challenge we would ask you to add DT2 after your entry.

Our challenge this time is 


we want to see flowers on your creation - the image, in the papers, embellishments - it's your choice!!

Don't forget to use at least one Basic Grey product, it could paper, stamps, die cuts, or even a button or brad  and please tell us what it is you've used!!

Basic Grey products use - Kioshi papers

I used one of the New Sugar Nellie adorables from Funky Kits and this one is Joy, isn't she gorgeous? She is coloured her with Copics and I've cut her a frame with Spellbinders nesties and a Joy die. The papers are from the beautiful Kioshi range, the corners cut with cuttlebug Vintage corners, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and threaded through the Joy frame to which I've also added some flourishes cut with a Marianne creatable. The pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

Our prize this week a fabulous gift voucher from our usual sponsor, 
the fabulous Simon Says Stamp

Simon Says Stamp $25 Credit Voucher

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, it snowed again here yesterday, but not enough to build a snowman so I think I shall just stay in and keep warm!!

that ribbon is beautiful the way it echoes the bow in her hair & the colours are quite stunning - soft & feminine. Love the way you've embellished the corners & that rose spray is so pretty.
