Favourite Colour Combo at Basic Grey

Oops - a bit late this morning - it was just too cosy in bed and I don't very often get a chance for a lie-in!  My hair looks a bit like this bed-head beauty's tresses!
This is my card for the new challenge at Basic Grey Challenges and our theme is your
Favourite Colour Combo.  What to choose, what to choose, so many favourites, and so little time!!  In the end I was drawn by the papers in my new PB&J and What's Up pads and went for Red and Duck Egg Blue - I do absolutely love these colours together and the pads are fabulous! 

The image is a A Day for Daisies from the Birds in my Hair collection.  Colouring looks a bit top heavy though - she looks like she's got the wrong colour foundation on!!
I've used a couple of Tim Holtz dies to go with the bird theme - Bird Cage and the Twiggy Tree die.  I've added some blossoms cut with a Stampin Up punch and a few centre pearls.
I've seen a few people in blog world using this torn edge technique for their sentiments and so thought I'd try it out! 
Now on to the business end - we're being sponsored, as always, by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp and we have a $25 voucher on offer for the lucky winner. 
 PLEASE, please remember that you have to use a Basic Grey product on  your card to be eligible!
My fabbie BG DT maties have made some gorgeous cards in some wonderful colour combos to share with you, so check them out here.
Off to get dressed now!

Oh so bright and beautiful. Your pretty lady has clearly applied her makeup to go with her surroundings - she has that rosey glow that nobody in England currently has (except me of course)! Hugs, Lesley
