Basic Grey Challenges - Favourite Things

I'm a day late with posting this but wanted to make sure the recipient received it yesterday.  It's for our next challenge at Basic Grey Challenges where we want you to use your favourite things, as well as a Basic Grey product - although they could well be one of your favourite crafting items, the papers are certainly mine!! 
I've made an easel card using Basic Grey papers - Out of Print, Little Black Dress and Basics White.  One of my all time fave things are Tim Holtz dies and this On The Edge Doily die is a new one that has quickly become a favourite!!  The image is a Krista Smith Digi at Saturated Canary - love, love, love all her images!!

On the bottom of the easel, I've used some cheesecloth, dyed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist in a lovely sparkly silver shade and added a bit of the cut -off round the bottom of the sentiment here.  And of course, some gorgeous flowers and gingham ribbon, sorted!! 
As always, our sponsor for this fortnight's challenge is the fabulous Simon Says Stamps and you could win an awesome $25 dollar spendette in their store!

Hope you can play along with us at Basic Grey Challenges over the next fortnight.  Pop over here to see the wonderful cards made by my fab BG teamies if you want some inspiration!!

I'm also entering my card into the current Saturated Canary Challenge which is to use your dies and punches.
Have a great Sunday!

As the happy recipient of this stunning card I can say that it looks even more beautiful in real life! I love how you chose an image that looks exactly like me right down to that beautiful flat tummy. Not bad for a 50 year old, eh! Thank you Julie! It's a BEAUTY and takes pride of place on the mantel. Even Tom said "WOW" when he saw it! Love Lesley
