I completed the first card for the Basic Grey challenges using their sketch. I thought this sketch was just wonderful, and I am sure I will use it over and over again! You may not recognize this Basic Grey at first look, but it is very recent. I used the Eskimo Kisses line for this card. Always look at the back side of your paper - you never know what treasure you will find! The back side made this paper so versatile for other times of the year. The stickers are also Eskimo Kisses, the flowers are Bazzill, and the stamp set is CTMH. If you click on the image, you may be able to see the Glossy Accents on the flowers.
I finished the next card for the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps technique embossing challenge. The embossing is to center stage in this challenge - no coloring at all. I used Bazzill textured CS, Zing Vanilla embossing powder, CTMH ribbons, and CTMH Treasure Life stamp set. The parts of the flowers that look blue are actually places where I put Stickles for a little shine.
