Basic Grey Challenge 27 - Texture

I got my first Dies to Die For DT package today and let me tell you, the contents are GORGEOUS! So, I've ignored the sunshine and armed with a collated print-out of this weeks challenges, have been playing all day long with my new toys. Bliss!

My first card of the day was for this weeks Basic Grey Challenge. The challenge was to build some texture into your card so I added some velvet ribbon and loads of Stickles to Lily's wings, even though you can't see it too well in the picture. Hope this gives enough of a texturised feel to qualify for the challenge!

Check out this wonderful image... It's part of a set of 9 stamps called 'Enchanted Lily' by Pink Cat Studio and the set can be bought from Tracy at Dies to Die For. I love these stamps as they are brilliant value when you consider just how muich rubbah you are getting for your £'s. Not only that but they are super cute as well - what more could you ask for?!

I also used my new favourite papers - Basic Grey 'Urban Prairie' - on this card. They are so totally me, I love the bright sunny colours. Great for spring. And, to add a bit of definition, I went doodle crazy! Loving this effect lately, sorry if you are all sick of it!

Goodie List........
Stamps: 'Enchanted Lily' by Pink Cat Studio.
Paper: Basic Grey 'Urban Prairie', Core'dinations CS.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Adhesive gems, velvet ribbon and Stickles.

Right I'm off now for more play time! Ali has another gala tonight so I am home alone. Time to put my tunes on and craft up a storm I think!

Enjoy the sunshine peeps!
