BasicGrey Challenge Blog - Challenge # 6

"This weeks challenge is a colour combo challenge, we would like to see your creations using one of the following colour combos :)

Green & Red/Maroon
Brown & Cream
Blue & Gold/Yellow/Orange

This weeks challenge is sponsored by CraftyKrafts

We would like to welcome our new design team member Kristen, Kristen will be our first scrapbooking design team member, we look forward to seeing your takes on our challenges Kristen :)"

This is the card I made for the challenge :

I was very excited to see that brown and cream were in the colour combo as I love these colours together.

I used to make this card :

Cream pearlescent card and brown and cream Bazzill Bling.

The image is a House Mouse image which was very kindly sent to me by my friend Jen. I coloured the image with distress inks.

The buttons are BasicGrey.

The flowers are Hero Arts with BasicGrey buttons and leaves from Hobbycraft.

The ribbon is from my stash and I tried the technique of putting a hole in the card and threading the ribbon through it and making a knot/bow that way and it was a lot easier ! I shall be using this method in the future. It will save me trying to get my leg on the table !!!! LOL !

Hope you all have a great weekend and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see what you have come up with.

Take care !
