BG Challenges 14

Hi everyone, hope the weekend is off to a good start for you. A card today for the next BasicGrey Challenge and this time there’s a lovely inspiration photograph as the theme. As always my DT friends have come up with some amazing cards so I hope you can join us. As always we’re sponsored by Simon Says Stamp with another great prize on offer as long as you include an item by BasicGrey.

I went with the yellow colour from the photograph and the little bunny on the shelf so I’ve used some paper from the Porcelain collection, which is so pretty with a lacey pattern and also some of the new Magnolia bunny paper. I’ve stamped the sweet Little Bunny Tilda from the new Magnolia Easter collection and she’s coloured with distress inks then cut out. The lace and white sparkly roses are by Magnolia as is the sentiment, the daffodils are from my stash. I just realised that I’ve left off the other two butterflies that were supposed to be in the middle panel :), will have to see to that later! Enjoy your Saturday and TFL.
