Friday Sketchers Challenge and Basic Grey


Good morning!
This is my card for this weeks Friday Sketchers and Basic Grey Challenge. I wasn't sure about the big triangle at first but it has grown on me! And, Basic Grey has a nice easy one this week. Their theme is just Christmas,so this card fits in quite nicely. So, here is my effort.
I have coloured Tilda with distress inks (aged mahogany, peeled paint, walnut stain and tattered rose with a wash of tea dye for the background). if you look closely you will see I've added pearl buttons to her coat!
The papers are Basic Grey Wassail collection which has such beautiful rich colours. The holly stickers also come from that collection.
I have stamped the flourishes around Tilda with Basic Grey stamps. I don't know the name of it!
The brads, ribbon,and pearls and letter stickers all come from my stash.
Well, thank you for looking.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
