BasicGrey Challenges - Doilies and Ribbons

It's Saturday and another BasicGrey Challenges !

Before I tell you about our challenge this week I would just like to congratulate our amazing and wonderful daughter Mollie on her super duper school report. She has just completely blown us away with the levels she has achieved this year and we are so proud of her ! She has worked so hard and we couldn't be more delighted that she has been rewarded for all her efforts - well done darlin ! xxxx

Now, back to BasicGrey Challenges ! Our challenge for the next couple of weeks is DOILIES AND RIBBONS - very easy ! Just remember you just need to use at least one BasicGrey product to be able to qualify for our fantastic prize of a $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

The DP's are BasicGrey "Marrakech" and these have all been sewn by machine. I always forget about this paper pad but are perfect for this bright card.

The image is a digi stamp by Some Odd Girl and is called "Beachy Tia" - dont' you just love her ! I just love these images/stamps, they are so quirky and fantastic to colour. She has been coloured with a mixture of ProMarkers and Copics. I added some glossy accents on her sunglasses which I am really pleased the photo picked up.

The doily and ribbon are from my stash.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

That wonderful sentiment is by Hero Arts, from a pack that Simon Says Stamp sent me in a DT pack but I am sure you must be able to buy it in a clear stamp set. I shall have a look and if I find it, I will link it !!!

We hope you can join us in our challenge and we look forward to seeing your fabulous entries.

I am entering my card for the following challenges :-

Some Odd Girl - Bright and Blinding !

Card Makin Mama's - Summertime (being sponsored by Some Odd Girl !)

Totally Papercrafts - The Beach

Dutch Dare Card Challenges - Summer Fun

Stampin B's - Beach Scene
