BasicGrey Challenges 34 - A recipe



Hi everyone, hope you're having a good start to the weekend and not freezing too much! Another fortnight has rolled by (where do they go?) and it's time for another challenge on BasicGrey Challenges.

From the blog:

For this fortnights Challenge we would like you to use the following 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)
Don't forget though, to be eligible to win the fab prize for this challenge you MUST use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation, it would also be helpful if you could state on your post what that item is, makes it easier for us you see :) 

My DT friends have made some gorgeous cards for inspiration and as always there's a lovely prize from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp, I hope you can join us.

For my card I've used the gorgeous Snowy hug from the Magnolia 'Merry Little Christmas' collection which I've water coloured with distress inks and cut out using a nestabilities labels die. I've used the die as a template to make the mats under the image in pink glitter card and paper from BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses collection, I also used these for the rest of  the card to make up my three papers for the recipe. The snowflakes are a combination of Martha Stewart and Woodware  punches and I've used glitter, gems and ribbon as well to make up my four types of embellishments. 

Have a lovely Saturday.
