CES and Basic Grey DT card and challenges

Time for two new challenges today at both CES Challenges and Basic Grey Challenges.
Over at CES Challenges we've got extra reasons for you to join in with us this week as it's Emma's Store's 1st birthday and to celebrate there's a £20 Voucher up for grabs for one lucky crafter!!
Have you also checked out the new CES Inspirational blog which showcases all the new stock available in Emma's store as well as cards and makes to inspire you - Emma has some blog candy up for grabs there too!!!

We have a recipe at CES for you at this week as chosen by our lovely and very talented Jenny:
1 image, 2 ribbons, lace or twine and 3 design papers
- my kind of recipe!!

Luckily at Basic Grey Challenges our theme is Doileys and Ribbon so I was able to combine the two! Just remember that you have to use at least one Basic Grey item and tell us what it is.  We're being sponsored as always by Simon Says Stamps with a fab $25 dollar voucher to spend in the on-line store.
Simon Says Stamp $25 Credit Voucher
For my card I've used the Hello Luscious Basic Grey papers (yummy) - three different ones, Webster's Trim (lush) both from Emma's store along with my 6x6 card base and Tim Holtz ticket. I also used a bit of the Webster's ribbon to make a rosette flower with the antique brad in the middle.  The other two flowers I made with the Spellbinders Rose Creation set. And of course, my one image is a fabby Simply Sassy!!
I've followed the fab sketch over at The Sugar Bowl, which also has a theme of Make Your Own Flowers, so I'm entering my card into that challenge.

Phew, think I managed to include everything!  Just left for me to urge you to check out the amazing creations by both DTs at Basic Grey and CES - fabulous, they are!!
