Basic Grey Challenge - Hearts

I don't do much crafting, limiting myself really only to the one DT card for Dottie's World every Sunday, so I thought I would make myself craft more, especially now I've spent the equivalent of two months' mortgage money on my Copic Sketch pens!! I never have time to craft, well doing these challenges should MAKE me take that time, whether I have it or now; lets see if it works out like that LOL

The challenge on the Basic Grey Challenge blog was "Hearts": "it can be any size and any quantity of hearts you wish, and also not forgetting to use at least one item from BasicGrey somewhere on your creation". As Valentine has been and gone I didn't want to make this too lovey dovey.

I cut the heart on my Silhouette and used the cut-out separately. The pop-out flowers are also cut on the Silhouette. Rachel Miller image coloured in with my new Copics. Basic Grey Blush paper for the main card, then Basic Grey Ambrosia paper for the flowers and Basic Grey Urban Couture ribbon (striped). Plus the brads are all Basic Grey too.

Thanks for visiting my little corner of the web :-)
