Basic Grey Wassail Card For BG Challenge......

I got some of the new Basic Grey Wassail paper this weekend and I was so excited to play with it.....you know when you see something and instantly know what you are going to do with it......(this doesn't happen to often with me!) well this was one of these instances! It also falls into this weeks Basic Grey Challenge which is a double bonus! This was the challenge:"This week we would like you to get shapely by using squares, circles, rhomboids, triangles, etc on your creations :), and of course to use at least one item from Basic Grey somewhere on your creations." I have used Wassail "Tree Lot" & "Falling Snow" papers & a BG Christmas rub on. I have cut the triangle trees out of the tree lot paper and used them as trees, adding little trunks with the reverse of the paper. I then matted this onto green Bazzill then onto the "Falling Snow" paper. I then doodled and dotted and applied to my brown Bazzil card blank. I then made a little tab using the BG rub ons and added it to the bottom right of my image panel. I love the sentiment because it is sooooooooo true!

I finished of by adding some black organza ribbon along the bottom and some old buttons from my stash. I must admit to them going and adding just a little crystal glitter to the trees, which ads just an ickle bit of bling!

  7. What beautiful things you make! I make cards and collages and altered art too! I never take pictures of my cards - I just send them all round the world. People love a homemade card like little else.

    And it is good to know that someone else has started making their Christmas cards this early - my friends think I'm a little crazy!

    Keep up the good work!
