BasicGrey with Charisma

For this card, I've combined the sketch from this week's BasicGrey Challenge, with the Charisma Cardz theme of 'Pretty Cards'. My main image is the very pretty Annie ('Blossom' stamp by Leanne Ellis from Funky Kits), coloured in various shades of pink to match the BG papers from the 'Blush' range. The swirls in the corner are from a set by Doodlebug, and the lace raffia is from Hobbycraft.

I also made another card using this stamp this weekend, for a few more challenges, but as I've sent it to my Docrafts friendship swap partner, so I'm going to wait 'til I know she's got it before I post it on here.
