BasicGrey Challenges - Autumn/Harvest Time

Helllooo and welcome to another BasicGrey Challenges ! It was so lovely to see so many of you play along with us in our last challenge of sparkle.

I would just like to give a little reminder though, we had a lot of entries to the last challenge that unfortunately couldn't qualify for the prize which was kindly sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, the reason being is that so many of you didn't use any BasicGrey products :(, we are a BasicGrey Challenge blog after all and our main rule is that you MUST use at least 1 item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creations to qualify for a prize, so please do try to remember this, as we hate to see so many of you loose out on a chance to win a fab prize :(

Now, onto this week's challenge. This week we want to see an Autumn/Harvest theme.

I tried (well had to) keep it clean and simple this week but do you know, I don't know why I bothered ! The card I made actually took me longer than using an image, colouring it and adding the tons of layers and embellies !!! It just goes to show what an art it is to keep things clean and simple and I hope that one day, I shall master that art ! I just adore those cards you see in Cards Magazine and Embellish Magazine, just stunning.

Anyway, here is the pest that took me all that time !

The DP's are BasicGrey Pyrus which are so yummy.

The stamps are by TPC Studio and are called "Autumn Harvest". The sentiment is also from the same set

The lace is some Prima lace.

The pearls are from my stash.

There is a terrific prize of a $25 shopping spree with Simon Says Stamp for the lucky winner.

We look forward to you joining us this week just please remember to use some BasicGrey !!! Did you know that if you go onto the BasicGrey website you can even get digi papers now ? Check it out !!

Have a great weekend and I hope to be back soon.


  1. gorgeous Jo, you have done a fabby job hun. that lace is delish.. I have the same problem with the cas cards, it takes me longer as well... can't work it out.. you have done a wonderful job with yours.xx

  2. Love this card Jo! I definately agreE! CAS cards are definately more time consuming. Everything has to be just perfect with them. The slightest mistake and it is much more noticeable! But I do love CAS, my favourote style! Enjoy your weekend!
