BasicGrey Challenges #1: Daisy

Click to enlarge image
First, huge apols for the absolute pants-ness of this photo! I've tried every room in the house, and the garden, but I can't get a good piccie! Probably too late in the day now! I'll take another tomorrow and update, but I want to post this now as I'm going to enter it for a few challenges, and one ends today!

Okay, so as I'm sure everyone knows, the hugely missed BasicGrey Challenge blog is back!! Woo-hoo! Well, the first challenge started on Saturday (8th August) with a gorgeous sketch by Tara G, and this is my effort!

I had a good ole look through my BG pads and decided to use one I haven't used in ages - 'Sugared' (I love the combination of gold, olive, pinks and brown). I also had a good rummage through my stamps and decided upon my very neglected Sugar Nellie Daisy stamp!

I sanded the dark brown Core'dinations cardstock to give it a more aged look, plus I used a couple of Versamagic Dew Drops to ink around the background DP and also the edge of the image. (Piccie doesn't really show this!).

I've left off the sentiment, as this has been made for someone in particular and I don't want them to realise its for them (and they won't be getting it for a while!) - hope that's okay?

I'm going to enter this card into the following 3 challenges:

1. BasicGrey Challenge - Week 1: I have followed the fab sketch by Tara G
2. Simon Says Stamp: Buttons and Bows
3. PollyCraft Monday Challenge - #21: Buttons and Bows

Thanks for popping by!

TTFN! Hugs, Sem xx
