BasicGrey Challenge 16

It's a sketch for the first BasicGrey challenge of 2009, and a great excuse to use lots of their lovely patterned papers! I've used a mixture of papers from the 'Boxer' and 'Sugared' pads on my card, together with a cute little butterfly stamp ('Bohemian' by Penny Black). The organza ribbon is from my stash, and I've tied a little paper rose (a Christmas gift from a friend) into the knot. I might add a sentiment to this, when I decide what occasion it's for.

I've also just seen that my lovely friend Pauline has given me an award...thankyou!...but I need to limit my list of addictions down to five before I post about that! lol
