BasicGrey Challenge 23 'Colour Combo'

Hi everyone, another Saturday and another BasicGrey Challenge which this week is a colour combo and a choice of:

Pink and Green
Pink and Brown
Blue and Brown

I hope you can join in this week, there's fantastic inspiration from my DT friends and a lovely prize of 2 downloads of your choice from new sponsors The Cutting Cafe. We've all been lucky enough to be able to use the gorgeous cupcake images for our cards this week. I chose the pink and green colour combo and coloured my cupcake with markers, cut it out and added some stardust stickles to the icing. I also used the cake stand from the set which is cut with rectangle nestabilities and matted on the scalloped rectangle of pale pink bazzil card, the image panel is finished with some sparkly pink gel pen doodling. The background paper is from BG Porcelain collection layered over some green coredinations card which I've distressed at the edges. I punched a border for the top with a MS doily lace punch, added the pink and green ribbons, little sentiment circle from the set and a gem to finish. TFL. Chris
