Basic Grey Challenge - texture

Supplies: Patterned paper: Basic Grey (Offbeat/unexpected), Bazzill cardstock (Brown & white). Others: Fiskars lace border punch, Imaginisce bird stamp, Stickles, Ribbon, Brown ink

This is the card I made for the challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges. Yes! There are people very enthusiastic about Basic Grey and they've set up a blog challenge site. This week's challenge is to use texture.

I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder on white cardstock, then painted with watercolor crayons. Light blue stickles was added around the edges. I added "grass" cut from green cardstock to add more texture to the piece. The bird in the center was propped up with 3D dots. The piece was then adhered to Basic Grey Offbeat/Unexpected paper and then to brown cardstock. Stitching was done the perimeter with pink thread. The birds were stamped on cream cardstock with brown ink, then painted a little with watercolor crayons. The "Hi" sentiment were individual letter brads. Brown ribbon with white stitching was adhered to the base to serve as the "ground" for the birds to stand on. I used the Fiskars lace border punch and then adhered white cardstock to the back so that the intricate lace design could be seen more clearly.

*Edited* Beginner's luck! Just found out that I won this week's challenge ! :)
