It's A (Basic) Grey Day!

Good Morning!  I'm quickly typing this in between basketball games today.  Another short post!  Do you all miss my long posts????  Probably not.  I miss being able to tell some stories.  Not today however.  I have another card I made using the Die Cuts R Us sketch this week.  It's a bit of a different take on it.  I got this paper by Basic Grey called Origins and had to try it out.  I also used a set by Basic Grey called Nook and Pantry Crumpets.  I added a few chipboard borders that I painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint in antique linen.  It's hard to see since it's under that big black ribbon.  I also stamped dots under that on the black.  Again, hard to see.  Up on top I have added a bit of bling using Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to my flower and the flourishes on each end of image.

Short and sweet!

Check back here tomorrow for a Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and I'm part of the fun blog hop that Whimsy Stamps is putting on.  See you then!

Gorgeous Card! I love those Origins papers...the bow is perfect...I think I enjoy the size of the card and the orientation of the fold the most. Again, gorgeous!
