BG 14 – Colour inspiration

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start. We have a lovely colour combo to work with for challenge 14 on BasicGrey Challenges which I loved so thanks Martine. We’re sponsored as always by Simon Says Stamp, offering a lovely prize as long as you include a BasicGrey product on your creation and there’s some gorgeous inspiration from my DT friends, I hope you can join us.

I’ve made a butterfly shaped card, cut on the Cricut from yellow Core’dinations card and on top I cut another smaller butterfly from Paper from the June Bug pad. All the edges are sponged with aged mahogany distress ink, closest I could get to maroon and to finish off I added some pink gemstones and a pretty ribbon. Have a good weekend and TFL.
