Basic Grey Challenge 19 - Recipe Challenge

Hello everyone!!! I worked on the Basic Grey Recipe Challenge today and this is how it turned out. I made this card for my first born, Kelsey, who will be turning 19 on February 7th!!! Where in the heck has all that time gone, Im not old enough to have a 19 yr old daughter lol. Ok well, I guess I am.

So the Recipe Challenge was:

For this weeks challenge we would like you to follow a recipe, you can of course add more embellishments etc to your creations but please make sure to use all of the ingredients in the recipe on your creations, and of course not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey.


2 Patterned papers

1 Button

1 Ribbon and Bow

3 Brads

So for the patterned papers I used 2 from the Urban Prairie Collection. I used Bountiful and Bonnet. I used a Stampin Up Baha Blue buttton laced with yellow embroidery thread tied in a bow to echo the yellow grosgrain ribbon/bow on the long panel. I used 2 pink flower brads (brand new from Stampin Up!!!) on the very top and very bottom corners. Then I used 2 gold heart brads on the other side of the long panel. So that takes card of all of my ingredients!!! This was a SUPER FUN challenge!!! I love these papers, they are soooooooo fun to play with, this card to me just oozes with Spring!!! Where oh Where is our Spring!!! Still a few months away Im afraid.
