Basic Grey Challenge # 33 - Black & Grey + 1 other Colour

Did you notice my new blinkie on the right side of my blog? Yes!!! I am honored to be a guest designer for the month of May at BasicGrey Challenges. Be sure to hop on over and join in on the challenge. There is always lots of eye candy from both the design team and the challenge participants. I am so excited to be able to be part of their design team this month. BasicGrey is my favorite paper company. But if you have ever seen my craft room (here), then you know I don't snub my nose at anybody...LOL! But we are all entitled to our favorites, right?

For the Black & Grey + 1 Other Colour challenge, I went with my BasicGrey 6x6 Ambrosia papers. I have 2 packages of Making Memories woven labels in my stash, and I decided on this rose/grey label "ALWAYS on my mind in my heart" sentiment.

Other products used:

Martha Stewart lattice border punch, Nestibilities Labels 4, Making Memories black mini brads, black cardstock (ACMoore), rose cardstock (XPEDX), black grosgrain (Michaels), Stampin' Up! dimensionals, and a paper piercer.

Hop over to'll be glad you did :)

Hi June

Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog !

I am so sorry, I thought I had visited you on Saturday but obviously not.

Your card is stunning. I adore the Ambrosia papers and have just ordered myself a pad and wait with anticipation for it to arrive. It is so fantastic to have you in our team and hope you enjoy yourself as much as we do.

Take care and hugs,

Jo x
