BasicGrey Challenges 28 - Paper Piecing and DT CALL

Hi everyone, hope you've all had a good week and a bit of sunshine! A new challenge on BasicGrey Challenges today and some news about our challenge too which is further down in the post. For this challenge we're paper piecing and my DT friends have made some beautiful paper pieced cards for inspiration so I hope you can join us. I've chosen a digi image by Cristy Croll which I've paper pieced digitally onto Websters Pages Sweet as Cherry Pie paper printed on textured card and coloured with copics. The background paper is from BasicGrey's Lemonade collection and I've added a punched border, purple ribbon and a punched flower to finish off.

The news: we're having a DT call! So if you fancy joining our little BasicGrey challenges family and love BasicGrey products then all the details are below.

Hey all
The team and i think its about time we had some new faces added to our little BasicGrey Challenges Family, don't you?, so we have decided to run a Design Team Call and we are looking for 4 new members to add to our little Family :)
So here are all the details then :)
(Please be sure to read everything thoroughly before applying)

How To Apply
To apply all you need to do is to take part in this fortnights challenge here and leave a link to your creation in the Mr Linky Widget at the bottom of this post, please put DT beside your name to try and save confusion to the peeps taking part in this fortnights challenge two posts down.

DT Requirements
As a DT Member you would be required to take part in our Fortnightly Challenges following the theme of the set Challenge, you will know all of the upcoming challenges in advance, so not to worry, You would also be required to take part in any other events that we may hold, like a Blog Hop for example :) (one of which will be held very very soon)
Part Of Another Design Team
Not to worry, as long as you can commit to the BasicGrey Challenges DT and are not conflicted with other DT work then of course feel free to apply, but please consider the new workload before you apply, the last thing we want is for you to struggle to keep up with the Challenges, this is meant to be fun and stress free, not a job that you feel obliged to do, so again please do keep that in mind :)
No Previous Design Team Experience
Not a problem at all, we welcome all applications whether you have DT experience or not, in fact we would encourage peeps with no previous DT experience to try out for our Design Team, more so over those that do, we want to give everyone a fair chance :)
No Blog
No problem, a blog is not required to be part of the BasicGrey Challenges Family, as long as you have an active Email account so you can send us your DT Creations then that is fine and dandy :)
When The New DT Will Be Announced
The new DT Members will be announced during our upcoming blog hop (date to be announced very very soon), this way we can celebrate our new Family Members in style :), and yes that means you will be required to take part in the blog hop, we hope that is ok? (for other DT requirements please see above)
A few things you might like to know :)
Are you associated with BasicGrey?
Sadly no :(, we are not in anyway associated with BasicGrey, We are just crafters who have a love of their wonderful crafty goodies like many of you :)
Do I Need To Use BasicGrey Products?
Well ….. yes, this is a BasicGrey Challenge Blog after all, so you will need to use at least one item of BasicGrey on each of your fortnightly challenge creations, this means you will be required to have at least a few BasicGrey products in your collection
Will I Be Given BasicGrey Products To Use In My Design Team Work?
As much as i would love to spoil each of the DT Members with ooodles and ooodles of BasicGrey goodies, truthfully i am afraid my purse wouldn't be very happy with me if i did :(, but … keeping that in mind, i do like to send my lovely BG challenge family members little surprises now and again ;) , but shhhh don't tell my purse lol
Right then, i think everything has been covered :), here is the Mr Linky then :), we look forward to your applications :)

Have a great weekend!

I love this. We have a commercial in the US where the person seems to blend into their background, and this card so reminds me of that. Very cool.
