Basic Grey Challenge #4

Hi All
Martine has posted the Basic Grey Challenge for this week, and it's based on this sketch by Susie Little. As usual you can make any project you like, just incorporate at least on Basic Grey Element, and of course the sketch. It's as easy as that. Why not pop on over and take a look at what the rest of the Design Team have done.
My contribution as Guest Designer this week uses Basic Grey papers from the Scarlets Letter collection. I've made a small wall hanging with a Christmas theme, which just goes to show, you don't have to use Christmas papers to 'do christmas'

I stamped and embossed small gold snowflakes on the red paper.
Then on my strip of green, I punched small holes in a line, and stitched a back stitch line along the length, and added a small gold charm.
The stamp is from Spiral Whisper, and watercoloured with Zig art pens
I cut the scrolls with my Cricut, and cut them into sections to drape around the edges of the design. They detract from the squareness and add an organic flow to the design.
I don't usually use these colours, even for Christmas cards, but my eyes have been opened to all sorts of possibilities whilst browsing other blogs. So I thank you for the inspiration.
The flowers are from Prima, who else.
Sadly this is my last week of guest designing for the Basic Grey challenge, But I've really enjoyed the challenges so far. I might be entering now to win a prize, so watch out.
