BasicGrey Challenges Blog is back!

BasicGrey Challenges has re-opened! Make a card following this sketch for a chance to win. This sketch is by BGC DT member, Tara G. Winners are chosen randomly, so grab something from your stash that is BasicGrey (stamps, papers, buttons, etc.) and make a card. BGC will no longer be offering weekly prizes, instead 5 lucky people chosen at random from this challenge will go through to the monthly prize drawing. Be sure to link your creation (not your blog) to this post.

Challenges will be held every fortnight and are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. The next challenge will begin on August 22nd.

I used...
BasicGrey Lemonade papers and button
Bazzill card stock (lime green) and flower (pink)
Nestibilities oval
Got Flowers? aqua prima (behind pink flower)
DMC floss (button)
Magnolia stamp (Tilda...thanks, Kristie!)
Copic & Bic Mark-it markers: flesh & swimsuit, respectively
Stampin' Up! dimensionals (behind Tilda)
Michael's ribbon and Value Pack base card

I hope you are having a great weekend!
