Basic Grey challenge #28

"This week we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow, which was designed by our fabulous Design Team Member Rica, feel free to rotate, resize and flip the sketch or even all three if you want to :), you can also add any more embellishments etc that you would like to, but remember to use at least one item from basicgrey somewhere on your creation, and most of all have fun :)"

I have to say that I have been itching to get back to these and the chance to have a play with my BG paper pads!!! For this challenge I squished the sketch up a bit so that it would fit onto a square card!

I used paper from a MARRAKECH 6x6 pad and the stamp is from Lost Coast Designs, which I thought went very well with the theme of the paper. I edged the image and the 2 strips and scalloped piece with gold krylon pen, though that deasn't really show in the pic. The rest were edged with a matching green chalk ink.

Thank you so much for taking the time to have a look XXXXX

Lovely! The gold edging looks fab on this. Believe it or not (given my allergy to papers) I just got the Marrakech 6x6 too - must use it!
