Basic Grey Challenge #27 - Texture
I did it!!!! I finally completed a card for a challenge!!! The last 2 weeks have been rough on me. Tax season was fine up until two weeks ago. Then I was gone for an entire weekend, that didnt help either. But I am back stamping and it feels good.
I made this card for the Basic Grey challenge this week, one of my most favorite challenges!!! The challenge for this week was to create texture on your card and using at least ONE Basic Grey product. I used Basic Grey Mellow papers on this card. I love the bright colors in this collection and the base color is: Did you guess??? Chocolate!!!!
I used the flower from the Stampin Up set called True Friend and used felt flowers in place of the stamped image for the flower. I punched the ovals with the Mega Oval punch and the scalloped backing with the Giga Scallop Oval punch. The green panel was embossed with my Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots. The striped panel was embossed with the circles (dont have a clue what this embossing folder is called, sorry)!!! I then embellished the green panel with brown dew drops. The words on the ribbon were mounted on a piece of chip board covered with Mellow Juicy. The words were then stamped in Chocolate Chip onto the orange paper. The ribbon is from Stampin" Up!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!! Make it a great week!!!
