Basic Grey Challenge #1/37 ~ Sketch by Tara

This is my entry for the new phoenix-like Basic Grey Challenges blog. Welcome back, chaps! :o)

My entry just came together so easily.. just kind of 'flowed' naturally. I attribute that to the wonderful sketch by Tara.. Simply fab! How can you go wrong? I flipped it, only because that orientation appeals more to my 'comfort zone'.

I used three papers from the Basic Grey Euphoria collection, two Cuttlebug folders ~ Fantasy Flower and Swiss Dots, and a Hero Arts stamp, along with floral embellishments, mainly from Prima, plus gems, cord and a lovely embossed metal corner.
