BasicGrey Challenge #28

Good morning !

I hope you have all had a great week. Mine has been exceedingly busy taking Ski here, there and everywhere. She is performing in two shows at the same time at the moment. The Wizard of Oz with her dance school. She is a tap dancing Munchkin and she looks soooo cute ! She is also a PR person in her school's production of Cinderella Rockerfella. I have never heard of this show before but I have now. Should any of the children drop out at anytime there is a Cinderella and Rockerfella standing in the wings ready to take their place. My DH and I know the show inside and out !!!

Anyway, back to business.....

Today at the BasicGrey Challenge Blog we have a sketch for you. This sketch has been created by Heather (Rica) and its wonderful to work with. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

It was great to make a large card again as like everyone else, I've gone square. This is my take on Rica's sketch.

The red base card is from The Papermillshop.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey Upbeat (red patterned) and Recess (apples and cherries).

The petrol blue card is Core'dinations which I ran through the Swiss Dots folder in my Cuttlebug and sanded a little.

The image is teacher Anya from The Greetings Farm and she is coloured with ProMarkers. Cinnamon and henna (hair), ivory and blush (skin), sandstone (top and skirt), petrol blue (top and skirt), poppy and ruby (apple), green (leaf).

The letters are BasicGrey Two Scoops mini monogram stickers.

The raffia ribbon is from HobbyCraft.

The sentiment was made by me on the PC. The font is called "kidtyperuled"

The star brads are from my stash.

The rest of the DT have excelled themselves again this week so hop on over and have a look at their creative genius !

Have a great Saturday and see you back here, same time for Colour Create !
