Papertake Weekly meets Basic Grey

>> Tuesday, 19 May 2009

What a hectic weekend.  We had friends over for dinner on Saturday night (my Jamie Oliver fish pie was a success) and on Sunday I was lucky enough to go to Wimbledon where they were celebrating the opening of centre court with its new roof.  We had an amazing day; Katherine Jenkins performed and we got to see Andre Agassi, Steffi Graff, Tim Henman and Kim Clijsters.  As a huge tennis fan it was fantastic to see these players again.

On to my card.  I’ve combined two challenges for this card.  Dawny has drawn a lovely sketch for Papertake Weekly and on the BG blog there’s a picture of a yummy ice cream to use for inspiration.

I had to use the BG Bittersweet papers for this card as they remind me of raspberry ripple ice cream.  I’ve coloured Mimosa with distress inks and tombow pens and added a bit of doodling.  I made the flower from four scalloped circles cut with my nesties.  I was trying to make the flower from Jami’s tutorial (see my side bar) but hers is far superior!  I took a deep breath and finally snipped a few pieces of my Prima Say it in Crystals; I have to stop saving things and allow myself to actually use them!!
