BasicGrey Challenges # 34....A Recipe....No Peeking, Edwin!

Good morning crafty friends! We had a little treat this week! A Cirque Du Soleil show called Dralion has come to our city. We got tickets, so, my Mom and Dad, Chris, the kids and I, all went to see it on Wednesday night and it was absolutely amazing, as always!!!! This was the 5th Cirque show that Chris and I have been to. I love Cirque Du Soleil! If you ever get a chance to see one I highly recommend it! 

So it is the weekend, YAY! My fave time; my crafty time, that I look forward to all week! I am in serious Christmas card mode and I am really enjoying it! I've even been making some cards during the week!  So, it is time for a fun challenge at BG Challenges. This fortnight we have a fabulous recipe challenge! I hope you can join us! Please swing by the BasicGGrey Challenges blog and see all the stunning creations by the super talented BG DT they are sure to inspire! 

The Recipe

4 Different Types of Embellishments(You can have as many of each type as you wish, as long as there are 4 different kinds, for example Ribbon, Pearls, Flowers, Charms etc etc)
3 Different Patterned Papers
(You can have as many plain matting papers as you wish, just as long as there are 3 patterned papers)
1-2 Images and/or 1-2 Sentiments(You can choose to have up to 2 in either of these, or even both if you wish)


I decided to ink up this sweet Edwin! I totally neglect poor Edwin and he is a doll too! I really need to use him more. I love how he is clutching his we pressie! So, again I embossed the Magnolia tree with Northern Lights embossing powder and coloured Edwin with my Copics and cut him out. He is pop-dotted on the card. I made an easel card from Bassill cardstock and matted with some kraft cardstock and used 3 different sheets of BG Jovial 6x6 papers. I absolutely love this paper to bits. I stamped the stitching with my Kelly Panacci stamps and Distress ink. I added the No Peeking sentiment by Kelly Panacci on a QK tag. my 4 different embellies are a Jovial Brad, pearls, red velvet AC ribbon and Prima and WOC flowers. The sentiment on the bottom of the easel card is from the Magnolia Merry Little Christmas 2010 Collection.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I hope you can get crafty this weekend and join us at BasicGrey Challenges!

The shading on his shoes & trousers is amazing & I love the light aqua with red colour combination. He does look a bit anxious about his pressie doesn't he? Amazing.
