Welcome Back --Basic Grey!!!

Welcome Back Basic Grey Card and Challenge

Basic Grey Challenges is finally up and running and seeing I love their papers what a better use of them but to challenge myself in using them up. I've pretty well Altered almost everything on this card down to the brads. All the papers have been tinted with beige and then added in some glitter for that extra sparkle. Even created the little flowers using Basic Grey Papers and then added a little Bling for more sparkle ..can there ever be not enough.I've decorated the card on the inside and added a little bookmark inside the card .. I love making bookmarks
The Large Square Brad I altered with adding to it BG paper and then heat embossed it in place
it's now just perfect for the card. I hand wrote in Welcome Back!
