BasicGrey Challenges 24 - Gingham



Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week and the heatwave (if you're in the UK) isn't sapping you too much :)! We have a new challenge on Basic Grey Challenges today and our theme is Gingham. The girls have made some fantasic cards so I hope you can pop over to see them and join us in the challenge. Heidi at Simon Says Stamp is offering $25 voucher to the store so even more reason to join in :D!!

I've used a sweet Tilda from the latest Magnolia collection and she's water coloured with distress inks, cut out and stickled. Not much else to say really, I wanted the pretty scene on the Websters Pages paper to show so I kept the card very simple just adding some ribbon and pearls and a layer of gingham and another of WP paper. Enjoy your Saturday and thanks as always for the lovely comments, they're always appreciated.
