Chipboard Challenge for Basic Grey


Over on the Basic Grey challenge site this week, the brief was to use chipboard on the card. I used Sultry papers, the bright pink piece on the left hand side was cut with storybook, using the marquee 2 cut, I cut at 4" then cut it in half. The brown scroll is from accent essentials, and the chipboard buttons are from a pack I picked up in Michaels dollar bins before I came home. They are by colorbok. I cut the marquee again for the sentiment, which is by great impressions. I do love Basic Grey papers, and those little 6 x 6 packs are such an affordable way to get your hands on them.


Thanks for all the emails with good wishes for Max. I am happy to say that he is out of hospital and seems full of beans. I am going to look after him for three days, so will probably be on my knees by Wednesday :)
