If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Basic Grey

As I first began exploring SCS (SplitcoastStampers), I kept seeing cards made with the most gorgeous and unique designer paper. And I kept seeing the words 'Basic Grey'. I finally figured out that BG was not a color, but the name of the company that manufactured this wonderful paper. It was the beginning of a love affair for me. This card uses one of their Christmas collections called "Dasher", and uses another sketch challenge layout from SCS. I love this sketch and it's a great way to use up scraps. The flower in the center is cut out from some of the dp. I wanted to use just the word 'peace', but didn't have a stamp I liked. So I inked up just that part of the word from "Peaceful Wishes". Also, the berry sprig is from that same set and I added a little red Stickles to the berries.
Recipe: Paper- Basic Grey dp (Dasher collection), blue bayou (Stampin'UP), white; Stamps- Peaceful Wishes (SU); Ink- black archival, real red and old olive SU markers; Accessories- red Stickles, red brads.
