House Mouse meets Basic Grey


This card is for the challenges on House Mouse and Basic Grey. The House Mouse Challenge was to follow a sketch, which is one I will definately use again, it was really good fun to follow. The Basic Grey Challenge was to make a card using a choice of colour combos. I chose blue and gold for my card. This is the first time I've entered either one of these challenges.
I used Basic Grey Granola papers, they're gorgeous. I layered the papers onto gold mirri card, used blue brads in the corners and added blue ribbon. For the stamped image I used Tombow pens direct to stamp, then blended a little, (was really pleased with how the image turned out).I used gold ink round the edges of the card with the image on then I added it to gold mirri card, with only one side of the gold showing. I then added a few blue flowers. I did the sentiment in gold ink and in the same way as the image round the edges. I also added gold ink round the edges of the card.
