Basic Grey ~ A Sketch

Well I told you that I would be back with some news!
I have been selected to join the Basic Grey Challenge DT.
Wow, I'm so happy, they already had a fab DT & they now have several newbies joining them!
Congratulations to the other girls.
Here is my first card, using a gorgeous sketch by the lovley Heather,
I have rotated it so that I could have Elodie watering her flowers.
Basic Grey papers ~ Curio
I have used:
Sarah Kay ~ Elodie in her garden
Nestabilities ~ Classic ovals & Scallop ovals
Hero Arts ~ Thoughtful messages
Tim Holtz ~ Distress inks
Retro flower punch
Maiden hair fern punch
Butterfly punch
Brads, pearls from stash
Glimmer mist
Hope you will join us & please could you state which BG products you have used!

Thanks for looking.
