Basic Grey Challenge - Christine's sketch!

This week on the Basic Grey challenge is a sketch by Christine - as always fab pieces by the design team - well worth a visit! I am going to make an effort to make a more masculine card using some more typically masculine colours.

For this card I used Granola paers from Basic Grey to matt and layer for the background. Then I used the same stripey Granola paper and some Bazzil bling (thanks to Trimcraft) to cut some fancy square matts on my Pazzles, which I distressed the edges of. I cut some of the Basic grey Granola Chipboard embellishments to create lines for the layout. The Basic Gery rub on "Happy Birthday" is on a piece of card painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint. The fish image(centre) and plant images (top left hand )are all Tim Holtz crackle paint on grungeboard.
