Grungy Birthday....

I have always been an earthy kinda gal and so happy that the grungy, shabby chic look is now in fashion. Grungy and shabby to me doesn't imply old and tattered, it's earthy colours, distressed edges and lots of Tim Holtz inks ;-)

So I used some of the gorgeous papers from Basic Grey on this birthday card I made for Nicola, DT member on Dottie's World - this card has to double up as my Monday Mojo submission on DW as I am so short on time these days.

Image is Madison 3-in-1 from the Holly & Madison Downloads, coloured in with my new Copics'. Papers are from various Basic Grey collections: Color Me Silly, Mellow and Ambrosia.

The swirl is a plain Rusty Pickle chipboard swirl that I coloured in two coordinate with Madison's clothing. K&Co Cut 'n Paste border.

Bazzil flowers, Woodware Pearls, Hot Off The Press Brads, H&Co "Hooray" chipboard.
