Basic Grey Challenge - Weeks 3 & 4


This one is for the current Basic Grey Challenge (Week 4), which is 'Embossing', but it was inspired by the picture from the Week 3 challenge (below), so qualifies for both.. aaaaanndd it is a good luck card for a colleague who will be moving on to a new job very soon. That's three ticks off my list of cards to make.. Love it when a plan comes together! :o)

If you look very carefully, you will spot the qualifying bit of BG kit... Yep.. the button! Couldn't tell you which collection it's from, though. The packaging was long since discarded.

The DP is pretty, don't you think? It's actually snowflakes, but I think it works as flowers. The paper is from Funky Hand's CD, 'Yule Be Funky'. Other bits used include Doodlebug rub-on lettering, and although it doesn't stand out much against the background, I quite like that.. it's subtle and doesn't fight with the design. Quite pleased with that. Three dew drops top left, and the Big Shot came into its own with the Nesties label, and the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing.
