Basic Grey Week 2 color challenge

 Tonight I looked over a few of my other favorite challenge blogs and saw that Basic Grey had posted their second challenge. It was a color challenge to use Brown, pink and yellow and at least one BasicGrey element.


Since I am still trying to use my new nesties, out they came. This time I used the Labels 5 set. I rarely make a card that has a sentiment as the focal point, but felt it would work well tonight. The sentiment is by Stamp Oasis. I began by looking through my BG paper and decided to use Urban Prairie. The bottom pink, and both patterned papers are from the pack. The brown and yellow are SU Close to Cocoa and Crushed Curry. The brads are also by BG (made for Bittersweet but I thought they matched ok). I used a corner punch by EK Success to keep the curved edge look flowing. I tried adding flowers and other embellishments, but in the end left it simple.

I hope you have a great week and if you get bored, stop by again, there may be something new to see.


  1. Absolutley Gorgeous!!!Love the colors and the new labels.

  2. Oh dear! I think I need those labels 5 :) Love the dimension you gave to the layers and that beautiful BG background paper. Pretty card!

  3. Fabulous card, I'm loving the look of the new Nestie labels, but I'm trying to be good at the moment (lol). Fabulous choice of papers, great layout and what a wonderful sentiment.
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at BG.
