Basic Grey Chipboard Challenge and Photo Swapp at TBSS

This week the challenge at Basic Grey Challenge Blog is to use chipboard.
Here is my take on the challenge. "Best Friends Card"
I have used Basic Grey Ambrosia Chipboard Shapes on the card.
The pattern paper is from Carolee's Creations.
Rub ons from Trimmings and Kaiser craft, flowers from scrapbook blossoms,
ribbon from my stash, base is black card stock.


TBSS had a photo swap. My swap was with Kath Parker.
Here is my take.
I really like the photo of her kids standing together and a wonderful background.
Siblings are lifetime buddies. Thats how the title came about.
I have used Bella scalloped card stock as the background paper,
with WRMK, Wipe Out and Cloud 9 pps for layers.
They are all distressed using Heidi Swapp Distressor but not inked.
I wanted the white to stand out against the purple background.
Flowers are from Green tara and Bella chipboard.
Journalling tag is also from Bella, diecuts and the doiley from stash
and alphas from Pink Paislee.

I am off to a seaside town for a few days to escape heat.
Will catch you all later next week.

Have a nice week
Thanks for stopping by
