Willow In Wisteria

As soon as I received the new Basic Grey Wisteria collection I knew I had to put beautiful Willow from Whiff of Joy on a card with this gorgeous paper. Then, as I have been doing lately, share it on the Basic Grey Challenge blog. Well, it looks like I am going to share it here on my blog only. For whatever reason Basic Grey Challenge blog has gone to invitation only and it doesn't look like I've been invited. I am so bummed about that, because they have a great DT and I love looking at all the creations. Basic Grey is one of my favorite DP collections. Have any of you had a problem getting onto their blog?

Well, at any rate, I absolutely love how this card turned out, if I may say so myself. The bold purple and soft blue of the Wisteria is such a pretty color combo and Willow looks so pretty in it.
Materials used:
Papers: Card stock Bazzill, DP Basic Grey Wisteria
Copics: Skin E00, E11; Hair YR21, YR24; Hat and Apron BG10, BG72; Dress BV00, V09
Flowers: Stripped from silk flower stems purchased at Walmart; center of large flower pearl brad from K & Company, small flower center brad from Wisteria collection.
Embellies and ribbon: from my stash
Tools used: Nesties and Cuttlebug
This card will probably go into my shop at the Branson Craft Mall and I hope it makes someone feel really special!
Thank you for stopping by! Remember to made someone feel special today!

Hi Barb
What a work of art! I love the colour combination you've used to contrast so well with the gorgeous papers and the little key, pearls and flowers are just the perfect embellishments. This card won't be in your shop for long!

This is so beautiful, the colours, the image, the papers are awesome - love it!!
The Basic Grey challenge blog is closed for a couple of weeks whilst Martine refreshes and updates it - it's looking good I can tell you and
I look forward to seeing your creations when we re-open. (check one of the DT's blogs for news)
