Basic Grey Anything Goes

Yayy, Saturday at last, hence I'm a little late as I had a lie-in! 
We have a nice easy challenge for you at Basic Grey Challenges this fortnight - Anything Goes!!  As long as you use a Basic Grey product on you card, you have free rein!!  I haven't done any paper-piecing in a while and wanted to use these mannequin dies that have been in my stash a litle while!  (Large is Tim Holtz, and the small one is from PTI, along with the matching stamp).
The image stamp is from B Line and I've had it a long time and still love it.  I paperpieced it with Lucille papers, and then layered it up with Basic Grey Manilla Basics on a Sizzix die set.  The blue floral papers, are PB&J.

The netting is from Webster's Pages, and the the cotton reel which I've used for the sentiment is also on the Tim Holtz die.
The sentiment is also PTI and the rest of the bits and pieces from stash.

We're being sponsored as always by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp, who are again giving us a $25   dollar credit voucher to pass on to the lucky winner of this fortnight's challenge.

The girls on the BG team are amazing and have made some wonderful cards for the challenge so pop on over here and be inspired!
If you're going out today, wrap up warm, it's bitterly cold here, enjoy your day!
