Basic Grey Challenge


This is my submission to this weeks Basic Grey Challenge. The challenge was to use shapes in your card...squares, triangles, circles etc..you get the picture. So, I decided to go for something simple and used rectangles.
I had lots of scraps from the Basic Grey "Figgy Pudding" collection and thought I would like to use them all up. So, all the background papers are from there.
The stamp is "Charlie and his Snowman" from Whiff of Joy. I coloured him with promarkers and added stickles to his hat and the snowman. I've added highlights with a white ink pen.
I've added some ribbon and pearls for embellishment. A very simple card but I am quite lpeased with the results! I don't often feel like that.
Well, 2 out of 3 kids are back to school after 2 weeks, so I am looking forward to organising the house in relative peace. Youngest is watching Peppa Pig so will be happy for a few more minutes!!
Have a great Monday!
