Happy Harvest Time at Basic Grey Challenges

I was full of good intentions last night to come in from work, do loads of blogging and prepare this post and the BG one for this challenge.  However, I was offered some last minute tickets to go and see Billy Elliott and I just couldn't resist!!  My eldest daughter came with me and we so enjoyed it!  The young boy playing Billy was amazing as indeed were all the youngsters in it!  
Good job I hadn't left making my card till the last minute. 

 Our theme at Basic Grey Challenges for the next  fortnight is 
Harvest Time - a chance to use all those rich autumnal colours and images and beautiful BG papers!
As I hadn't coloured up a Tilda in ages, I decided the theme was just perfect to show the lovely Tilda some love!   
The tree is also Magnolia as well as the wooden bucket of apples at the side.  (I nearly made a booboo and placed a few of the little punch cut apples still hanging in the tree and then of course realised it's an oak tree!) 
My Basic Grey papers are Pyrus - they are so autumnal and harvesty!! 

The fence is a TH edger die, the grass a mixture of a Memory Box die and a Whiff of Joy Die.  The sentiment is by Stampin Up. 

As always, we have the fabulous Simon Says Stamp sponsoring the challenge with an awesome $25 dollar voucher going to the lucky winner!!

Don't forget to pop on over here to see the rest of the DT makes for the challenge - they are stunning!

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Simply Magnolia - Anything Goes
Tilda's Town - Autumn Colours
Fab 'n' Funky - Harvest/Food

Right, I've got a date with a Stampin Up Demonstration this morning so better get cracking!!

Hi Julie, hope you're well and I'm so envious you went to see Billy E, been thinking about that one for a while! Glad you enjoyed it anyway and great to get last minute tickets.

Your card is so gorgeous, I love your colouring and autumn colour scheme. Made me laugh about the apples, the sort of thing I would do but not realise until after :D. Have a good week. Chris xxx
