So, I was ready to dig in when I saw that this week's challenge over at the BasicGrey Challenges blog is to.......
"...... follow a recipe, you can of course add more embellishments etc to your creations but please make sure to use all of the ingredients in the recipe on your creations, and of course not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey"
2 Patterned papers
1 Ribbon and Bow
So, I pulled out my BasicGrey Bittersweet paper and picked Mousse (just love all the sweet little hearts) and Praline (I'm all over these YUM-O stripes) from the 6x6 pad. So, I thought I would team it up with this adorable Magnolia house image to make a sweet card for my friend who moved into a new house several months ago. I think she has had some time to unpack and start to make her, new house, home!!! I'm just so happy for her!!!
I made the card base 6X6 with Bazzill cardstock and inked the edges of it and the edges of the pp. I stamped the Magnolia image on Georgia Pacific paper with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured it with my Copics and Twinkling H2Os, then cut it out and adhered it with pop-dots.
I cut a scrap of Bazzill cardstock with the QK 4X4 border die and used the scalloped edge, which, I embossed with the QK Heart Goosebumpz die and added a little Metallic rub-ons.
The sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on. I applied it to another scrap of Bazzill cardstock (I think it is called pomegranate) and I cut the folk heart from Bazzill Bling (String of Pearls) cardstock with a QK 2x2 die and added the button and tied a bow with string. Finally, I added the 3 brads from BG Wassail collection, the American Craft ribbon and a dash of Stickles!
I am quite happy with how this card turned out and love the country feel! I just love this little house too. Now, maybe if I lived in a cute pink Magnolia house, I would be a domestic goddess....ummm...doubt it, eh!? Me too, lol!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek! I hope you can join this week's BG challenge and I am looking forward to seeing all you fab creations!!! Also, I have received two fabulous awards, one from Bev and one from Annchen. I do appreciate them so much but have been tardy in getting them posted and I will do so very soon, I have just had a bit of crazy week, sorry!
