BasicGrey Challenge # 26

Phew another busy week gone by and a couple more to come yet for me still, stops me from getting into trouble ;o) !!!!

This week on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog the challenge is rounded corners, no angles allowed ! We also have a fabulous prize on offer which has very kindly been given by my fellow talented DT member Kim ! What a star !

This is my creation for this week's challenge

I followed the sketch on Mojo Monday for this card. It's just lovely and simple but looks so good. I shall definately use this sketch again.

The base card is white Bazzill.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey Granola.

I also used some dark grey and navy card for matting and layering from the Papermania card stack.

The image is Daisy from Daisy and Dandelion which I have stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. I haven't added any other colouring because I don't think these stamps really need it (unless of course you want to !). I have added some vintage photo distress ink to the edges of the circle.

The silver photo anchor and brads are from my stash and I think are Making Memories.

The ribbon is from my local haberdashery shop and just went perfectly with the colours of the Granola papers used for this card.

The sentiment is by Craftwork Cards.

All the corners were rounded using a Papermania corner rounding punch which I am very impressed with and would highly recommend.

Please hop over to the BasicGrey Challenge Blog to see my fellow DT's creations - yet again they are outstanding and truly inspirational.

I'm looking forward to seeing all your rounded corners this week !

Have a great Saturday and see you back here tomorrow for Colour Create and Kaboodle Doodles.
