New BasicGrey Challenges # 13...A Sketch by Martine...So Happy We're Friends!

Well, 2 weeks have passed and it is time for another BasicGrey Challenge! We have a fabulous sketch by the wonderful and talented, Martine, for you to use and we also have a fabulous prize sponsored by Simon Says Stamp...there are lots of great goodies in this bundle. The BG DT also made gorgeous creations with this sketch and I hope you go have a wee peek and then join the fun!
For my card this week I used BG Nook and Pantry and American Crafts cardstock! I just got this 6x6 paper pad so this paper is new to me but I am sure many of you have had it for a while now! Such gorgeous papers in this pad...just lovin' 'em! I decided to use this sweet Magnolia stamp called Dragonfly Tilda. Of course, I coloured Tilda with my Copcs, cut the image out with my Neties and then used the die as a template and sponged in the background with Distress inks!

I ended up piling on the embellies on this one and I am not sure if Martine's fab sketch is still visible under all that stuff....sometimes I just don't know when to stop,lol! I used Prima flowers with brown half pearls from the dollar store, American crafts ribbon and some lace trim from stash. I also used a Shabby Shoppe Digi Round Label, a Stampin' Bella sentiment and a Autumn Leaves ticket stamp.

Here is the inside...this is Kraftin' Kimmie Holiday Sentiment stamp!

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you get some stamping time this weekend! I hope to but I feel like I am getting the sniffles...hope I don't get too sick as Monday is my B-day and I am taking the day off work and spending it in my stamp room!

Absolute perfection Tara and your Tilda is so beautifully coloured. I can def see the sketch and your embellies only add to it. I missed half the sketch off my card this time, oops. Love the papers, I didn't buy that set but I'm looking forward to the new ones on the way which look delish. Big hugs, Chris xx
