Basic Grey and a Few More!


For this card, I used this weeks Basic Grey Challenge Sketch and the Ambrosia 6 x 6 Paper Pad. I love orange/brown tones and dont make enough cards with these colours.
This is a Bildmalarnas stamp that I have coloured with Promarkers and Lyra Polycolour Pencils. Used a variety a MS Punches including the new Eyelet Heart and cut image with Nesties on my Big Shot. The flowers are a mix from my stash and added Crystal Stickles. Leaves also MS punched. Lots of Liquid Pearls in Gold and a few gems.


My Card also fits into the following challenges:-

Crafty Angels - Fantastic Flowers
Incy Wincy Designs - Punch It Out
Crazy Challenge - Flowers and Butterflies
Our Creative Corner - Something Old Thats New (Paper Pad been redundant for some time)
Daring Cardmakers - Have A Heart
Polka Doode - Hearts and Flowers
Stamp Something - Something Cute

2 of the children off school. Unfortunately Jessica has different holidays so I still have to be up and take her to school. I've nothing planned for this week. Reckon we may get a bit of snow tomorrow. I think it will be a week of taking it easy. Crafting, Blog Hopping and if I get round to it, may have a sort threw my stash.

I have candy that I will be posting either later today or tomorrow. Just waiting on 1 item then it'll be up on my blog. I dont have any special rules, only that you post about it on your blog.

Hope to be back soon with another project. Have a lovely week
