BasicGrey Challenges - Colour Combo - Hot Pink, Lime Green and Brown/Kraft

Good morning ! Beautiful sunny morning here today and I've been up with the lark as Mollie is having fun day out with Brownies today and we had to be with Brown Owl by 8am !

I can't believe the time has flown by so quickly and this challenge at BasicGrey Challenges took me completely unawares, I was convinced it was next week this challenge was going live. I ended up making my card very late yesterday but the good thing was, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, I just had to bring the making of it forward by a few days !!

We have a lovely colour combo for you this challenge, HOT PINK, LIME GREEN and BROWN/KRAFT.

There are lots of BasicGrey papers in these colours and for your inspiration, the DT have made some terrific cards for you again this challenge and listed what they have used and there is a good mix there of various BG products in these colours. Of course, you don't have to use BG papers, you can use any papers you like but YOU MUST use at least one item of BG to qualify for the prize !

We are of course being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp again and the lucky winner will win a spending spree in their store of $25.

The DP's I used are BasicGrey "Sweet Threads". I have machine stitched these.

The sentiment in the centre is a set from My Favorite Things called "Four Point Frame". At the time of buying this I thought it was expensive but you do get a metal die in the pack (to make the jigsaw shape) and about 22 different clear stamps in the set which can be used with or without the die.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts

The lace and gems are from my stash.

We hope you can join us in our challenge and we look forward to seeing your amazing creations again !

I am entering my card into the following challenges :

Crafts and Me - Stamp Something

Fabulous Friday - Stitching

Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes

Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes

Crafty Sentiments - Add some sparkle

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave. Hope you have a terrific weekend.
