Basic Grey Challenge # 24...Pockets...Puppy Hugs Just For You!!!!

Well, we are back with another fab challenge for you this week from the Basic Grey Challenges blog! I hope that you can play along with us!

For this week's challenge we would like to see you use pockets in your creation, interpret this how you would like, but of course not to forget to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation :)

(Please remember to follow the rules along the left hand side before taking part in this challenge, thank you)

So, I have to admit that when I saw this challenge, I had to put my thinking cap on and mull it over a bit! I knew I was going to use this darling new Magnolia stamp, Tilda with puppy! She is a doll and the puppy is adorable! But what was I going to do for a pocket!? Well, I finally, decided to cut a mini envelope on my QK Silhouette and then stuff it full of "puppy hugs",lol!

Well, I actually stamped several Magnolia heart on different BG Mellow papers, to represent the puppy hugs! I cut them out, inked the edges and stuffed them in the mini envelope. I was inspired to make a card with a "country" feel when I saw this fab brown gingham American Craft ribbon in my stash! I thought it would look great with the BG Mellow papers!!! To carry on with the country/homey feel of this card I stamped some stitching with my Kelly Panacci Stitching stamps around the edges of the paper.

Tilda is stamped on Georgia Pacific paper and coloured with Copics and Twinkling H20s! I cut her out and pop-dotted her on the ribbon! I added a few Prima flowers and lots of Stickles here and there for some extra sparkle!

For the inside I cut another mini envelope and the card on my my Silhouette and added the Studio G sentiment inside the mini card!

Well, I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Make sure you check out all the other BG DT cards they are really fabulous and you are sure to be inspired!!!!
