CES and Basic Grey Challenges - Lots of Embellies and Brown and Pink

To me that sounds like a match made in heaven which is just as well, as I ran out of time this week to make separate cards for each challenge.  Nightmare week at work but won't bore you with that! 
Back to the business at hand, at CES Challenges we want to see at least 4 different types of embellishments and at Basic Grey Challenges we have a colour theme of Brown And Pink.  At BG of course, you have to use a Basic Grey product!!

For my card, I've used my gorgeous new BG pad, Nordic Holiday, along with  pearl ribbon sliders, divine twine, wooden stars, glittery buttons, pink rhinestones, and Websters trim - the white netting  ( that's well over four!) all from Crafty Emma's Store.  I've  sprinkled some Gold Glamour Dust, that Emma also sells, onto the wooden stars,  having first whitened them with acrylic paint.  The rhinestone swirls were a birthday present and the spotty organza ribbon's from stash.  Oh, and this gorgeous fairy image is by Mo Manning - the Good Witch, Glinda, from The Wizard of Oz - one of my most favouritest Mo images!!

Two fabby prizes for the winner of each challenge too.
Emma is offering  a £10 voucher to the winner of our Embellie challenge at CES.
