Anyway, so, I had a little look on the Basic Grey Challenge blog to see if I could have a go. I could, and I have!
This week, the challenge is:
.... a colour combo, we would like you to pick one of the following colour combos for your creations (Skin and white card colours are allowed too),
Pink and Green
Pink and Brown
Blue and Brown
I went for Pink and Brown. The papers are 6 x 6 Sultry which I have trimmed ever so little off the sides (how can I waste such lush papers?!) and if you look closely, I have reused them under the ribbon flower. However, I forgot to ink them so they are not that easy to see. Edges of the cardstock and backing paper have been inked in bright pink and then Chestnut Whispers.
The flower is made from scraps of chocolate satin ribbon and the centre is another of the buttons I bought from Helen recently. And that's it! Very simple.
I am actually quite mad as I've brought the bunch of papers to work with me every day and sat and looked at them from time to time. Well, its better than picking my nose or trumping....
