Basic Grey Challenge 24

Well, I have made a card for another Basic Grey Challenge. This is Challenge 24, and the challenge for this week was to make a card with some type of pocket (and of course something Basic Grey). I made a card using some of the Bittersweet pp that I had left from the last card kit from the Attic, and some pp from the Blush collection. I made a narrow pocket at the bottom, leaving enough room to put in my flower "stems". The flower "bouquet" in the pocket are made with chipboard flowers from Fancy Pants. I inked the stems and leaves with pigment inks, and inked the blossoms with Perfect Pearls in various colors. I put faux pearls on one blossom, Frosted Lace Stickles on another, and added K I Memories 3D flowers to the other two. I adhered some Wright's lace ribbon across the top of the pocket. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart. If you want to participate in the Basic Grey Challenges, the link is on my sidebar to the right. A new challenge is posted every Saturday
