BasicGrey Challenge #18

First of all - check this out ! Large drum roll please..........

Not only has our very own talented Kim been on the shortlist for Card of the Year with Craft Stamper magazine, got engaged, been featured on Inspirational but has just had her card from the BasicGrey Challenge Blog (challenge 16 - sketch) featured in none other than the BasicGrey Gallery ! Way to go girl ! Isn't that just fantastic news ? Many congratulations Kim !

Well, after that exciting news time to tell you about this week's challenge.

"We have a special challenge for you this week :). We would like to see you use one (or all even if you want to) of these fabulous illustrations which have been designed by our own fabulously talented Kim , (Only people taking part in this challenge are allowed to use these images (for now anyway) and of course when the challenge is over you can continue to use them if you wish but please remember that these images are copyright to Kim and should only be used according to her terms of use), oh and of course not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation :)" You will be able to find these illustrations on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog

This is the card I made for the challenge this week.

I used two of Kim's illustrations and coloured them with ProMarkers. I cut the image out with my oval nesties.

The red card is some Bazzill and the patterned papers are BasicGrey Sugared. I loved the little heart detail in this paper. I used my Fiskars water threading punch on the paper.

The hearts I cut out on my Cricut and used the same Bazzill card and Sugared paper and put a button in the centre with some lovely red and gold shimmery ribbon.

The flowers are Hero Arts flowers and both started out as being white as I didn't have any red flowers. I coloured the smaller flowers with my ruby ProMarker and then I had a couple of red ones !! The brads are BasicGrey brads although I'm not sure which ones.

The corner flourishes are those fab little Studio G ones you can buy for 99p and the greeting is by Hero Arts from one of their clear sets.

You must go and see what the rest of the DT have created - they are amazing.

I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you have made !

Hope you all have a great weekend !
