Hello Friend - Basic Grey Challenge #1

Okay, unlike my last post, this is the real deal! I actually used Basic Grey paper and a Basic Grey Brad for this card so it fits the challenge.

We were to make a card using mostly Basic Grey product and we were to follow this sketch.

I used Basic Grey Eve Collection for my paper and an Eve brad in the middle of the flower.



The flower is cut from actual sewing patterns using 3 different sized scalloped circles. I attached them through the center and then crinkled them and spritzed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sherbet and Scarlet. I got the idea from Annabelle at Bits and Pieces.

I also spritzed the BG pink paper with some glimmer mist so it coordinated with the flower. The BG letters, flourishes and the leaf were all covered with Ranger Crackle Glossy Accents.



Supplies:
Paper: Basic Grey Eve
Cardstock Base: Bazzill
Brad: Basic Grey Eve
Letters and Flourish: Basic Grey Eve
Ribbon: May Arts
Flower: Sewing Pattern, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist

Both cards are beautiful, Tami, but I love this one the most. I will have to try this flower. Someone just gave me some Shimmerz and Blingz that work something like what you used, I think. Got to get me some of those Cosmo Cricket papers, too. I'm so glad that they're coming out with a new size for cardmakers. I love the Early Bird Collection.
