BasicGrey Challenge #14

What a very busy week it has been this week and I have had no time at all for crafting or blogging. I was lucky and manged to make this card last weekend !

Now for this week's challenge on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog .....

"For this weeks challenge we would like to see some charms on your creations, you can have as many as you like, and of course not forgetting to use at least 1 item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creations"

This is the card that I made :

I used brown card from The Papermillshop

BasicGrey Pheobe patterned paper which is lovely with the little birds on it. I also used BasicGrey Sultry for the stamped birds. The birds are Hero Arts stamps.

The blue/green card is Core'dinations which I stamped with an Inkadinkado florish in Versafine Olympia Green.

I downloaded the image from Pink Petticoat and coloured it with ProMarkers. The sentiment is also from the same download from Pink Petticoat.

The ribbon and key charm are from my stash.

The flowers are Hero Arts flowers with leaves from Hobbycraft. The spacers and brads are from my stash. I also used some little rainbow drops and pearls also from my stash.

I have sent this card to my friend who is moving house in the New Year.

I would also like to say many congratulations to my new playmates ! Who are :

Kim Tara Anthea Chris Rica

I am sure we are going to have lots and lots of fun !

Have a good weekend.
