Happy Saturday everyone and it's time for another BasicGrey Challenge. I hope you can join in, the DT have some incredibly beautiful cards for inspiration and there's a scrummy prize too.

Thank you to everyone who took part in last weeks challenge, as usual your creations were all fabulous and I am delighted and so impressed with how you all used my images in so many wonderful & beautiful ways, Thank You!
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

I went shabby chic with this one love the gorgeous colours of the blush collection!!! The frame has been stamped and cut out with the edges inked softy. I have stamped the butterfly very faintly under the happy birthday sentiment.

The vine, flowers and butterfly have been stamped directly onto the patterned paper and I have embellished with the three pearl brads. The flower is die cut scrunched up and inked to give shabbiness. finished in the center with a button and half a bow...

Paper: Basic Grey - Blush, heavy weight cartridge,
Stamps: Basic Grey - Bug/B2 Bitsy, HOTP - sentiment,
Die's: Sizzix - flower layers,
Ink: Distress inks, colourbox queues,
Other: Edge distresser, Adhesive gems and Bling, 3D foam, BG 2scoops button, Lace from stash, American Crafts ribbon,

I would like to say huge congratulations to my BG team mate Anthea who has also had her work published in the BasicGrey gallery you can see her gorgeous cards here.
