>>> 365 Cards Day 78 & 79 <<<

Day 79 challenge is 'Monday's Manufacturer' and the challenge is to use your favourite manufacturer in in the majority of the card. Well, I've got so many favs but had to go for Basic Grey as firstly I've got tons of their papers and secondly, their papers are just so easy to use. So here's my card made entirely using their papers:

Patterned papers by Basic Grey Urban Couture collection. Stamped image by Magnolia (just had to get at least one image of her to play and colour with) and sentiment by Purple Onion Designs.

Incidentally, this challenge is also done for Basic Grey challenge #35 - Ice Cream. Found this site a few weeks back and they host challenges encouraging you to use Basic Grey stuff. Well, this week's challenge is to take inspiration this particular image (note: you don't need to use the image in your card):

No problem here! When I saw it, I immediately thought of Banana Split as that was what I used to order whenever I had ice-cream like that! So that was how my card came about... made use of the colours found in Banana Split (usually 3 different favours, chocolate, vanilla & strawberry ice-cream, topped with bananas, nuts and cream.... yum yum!). At times, I did request for mint-chocolate chip favour! Hence the lime green! :)


Day 78 challenge is 'Super Sketchy Sunday'. Here's the sketch:

Here's my take on it:

Patterned paper by Crate Paper Lemon Grass collection. Stamped image by Unity.
