BasicGrey Challenge #21

The challenge over on the BasicGrey Challenge blog this week is to 'Mix it Up' - in other words, to use items from at least two different BasicGrey ranges on our cards. Now, I have several of the BasicGrey paper pads, so I thought that this challenge would be a doddle, but the problem was choosing which of the many gorgeous papers to use! I settled for a mixture of 'Eva' and 'Archaic', a plain, and a patterned paper from each, to compliment the colours of the Penny Black image (from the 'Hugs' set) I'd decided to use. The sentiment stamp is from a set by Autumn Leaves ('Talking in Circles')...which I've had for ages, but have hardly ever used, the flower is from Poppicrafts, and the button is from my stash.
