BasicGrey Challenges # 33...A Colour Combo Challenge....I heart U!!!

So, this really is going to be a quick post! I still have to finish packing all my stuff and then head over to my friend's house for all day stamping fun! Now that I have a craft room it is very hard to get packed up and go to a crops! I have way tooooooooooo much stuff to pack! Yes, I know, I should be more organized and only bring what I really need but I will need it all,lol!!!!

It is Saturday and that means it is BasicGrey challenge day and we have a great colour combo for you this week!
Black + Grey + 1
from the blog....
"Now you may be asking what does the +1 mean, well this means that you can choose the third colour for your creation :), sounds like fun doesn't it :), now don't forget that you must also use at least 1 item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation, so have fun and we can wait to see your wonderful creations and what third colour you have chosen :)
Now to make this challenge that much sweeter, we have a fabulous prize to give away to one lucky winner.
This week we are very generously being sponsored by Regina From The Cutting Cafe has very kindly offered the winner of this weeks challenge, a choice of any 2 downloads from her store, how kind is that :)"

For my card I made the base 6X6 from some silvery grey Bazzill Bling cardstock and used BG Ambrosia 6x6 paper pad! I inked the edges with my Inkssentials blending tool and foam and some chalk inks! I stamped Tilda on Prism Simply Smooth cardstock and coloured her with my Copics and added lots of Stickles here and there and again inked the edges with my inkssentials foam and Metallic Rub-ons and apricot chalk ink. The sentiment is Kelly Panacci clear stamp set and the tag is a Qk 2x2 die! The yummy ribbon is from Micheals and I added few Primas and dollar store rose buds and Shimmerized all the flowers.
I finished the inside but didn't get a good pic but I used the Magnolia gift with bow from Christmas and used a Melissa Frances rub-on for the inside sentiment says...a gift from the heart!
So, there you have it! It was a ton of fun using this colour combo and I hope you can play along with us this week! Make sure you visit the other talented BG DT members and see their gorgeous creations and then you will not be able to resist playing along with us, smile!!!
Have a stampin' great day!!!
