Our Creative Corner Challenge - Basic Grey!

Hi everyone! It's time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge! Cindy is challenging everyone this week to make a card/project using any Basic Grey designer paper. Thank you, Cindy, for hosting all the challenges this month. Loved them all!

You may have seen on Wednesday that we all posted a little tease about today's challenge. Well, here's the scoop you've been waiting for...Lindsey Botkin of Jacksonbelle Embellishments will be awarding a $15 gift certificate to one lucky winner from this week's challenge participants. Ordinarily, there's no time limit on the OCC challenges, but this week, to be entered into the drawing, you need to have your project linked up by 12 noon Eastern Time on Friday, July 4 on the Our Creative Corner blog. We'll draw a random name from the entries and announce the winner on Saturday, July 5, along with our next challenge. How fun is that?! Can't wait to see all the entries!

Thank you, Lindsey, for the awesome giveaway and for being our guest designer!

For my card, I used Basic Grey Blush (BLU-653 Admire). I thought the floral print went so well with the Annie LaPoint Take a Break image from MFT...I think I'm obsessed with this stamp, it's gorgeous and it stamps soooo nice. The image was stamped four times. The base layer was colored with Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi reinkers as well as a Pale Blue Gray Copic marker. I colored one set of flowers in Regal Rose and the other set with a Flesh Pink Copic marker...which actually looks more peach than pink. The tub, Regal Rose flowers, and Flesh Pink flowers were all cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

The inside of the card includes a black mat layer, with a white panel over top of that, and then a strip of the Blush/Admire paper along the left edge. I used my corner rounder for the scalloped edge.

awesome card Denise and the inside is just as pretty as the outside. Sometimes I forget to make that just as important. I hope to play along this week- I have some basic grey but not sure of the name.

This is just beauiful Denise!! I love how you decorated the inside, sooooo pretty! I gotta tell you something weird-- I am in the process of making a set of cards for my mom with the EXACT same Basic Gray Blush dp you used for this card--I guess I'll finish them up and join in the challenge!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and your sweet comments made me smile, I really needed it this morning:):)

This card is so beautiful and sweet Denise...just like you. I love the darling paper you chose, and the additional flowers in the tub. And I have to tell you how much I love that you always decorate the inside of your cards too. I never take the time to do that, so whoever receives one of your treasures, gets an extra little treasure inside too. LOVE that!! Awesome!!
