Basic Grey & CES Challenges

Good morning and happy Saturday! I have 2 DT cards to share today. First up is Basic Grey Challenges and there is a fabby sketch by the very lovely Heather.

I just had to ink up one of Whiff of Joy's February release stamps, called Nora with Ducks  and I've used Basic Grey Archaic Papers, matted with brown cardstock. I cut out my image with classic oval nesties, but I trimmed out around the puddles first, then I used the scalloped oval nesties to matt it. 

The lace, pearls and flowers are from my stash.

Challenges -
Charisma Cardz – Spring has sprung
Copic Creations - Use Warm Colors Copics
Simply Create - bold & bright
 Samuel Taylor's Challenge - use Copic or Promarkers

Next up is CES Challenges, and again I used a Whiff of Joy stamp and this one is called Skater Ben

The papers are Whiff of Joy's Spring Paper Pad and I've paired them with kraft cardstock. I made the SK8 tag using the kraft card, a flossed button and pink paislee's alpha stickers. All of my papers have been machine stitched. To finish off I added some more flossed buttons, my favourite 'boy' embellishment :) The pom pom trim is from my stash.

Challenges -
Crafty Catz - one for the men/boys
Aud Sentiments Challenge  - add a trendy saying
 Paper Pretties - card for a child
Simon Says Stamp - make your own embellishment (sentiment tag)
Stars and Stamps Midweek Throwdown - masculine card
ECP Challenges - Something for the boys
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Spring

Well that's it from me for today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Be sure to check out my teamies' blogs and say Hi!
