New Challenge Blog - Basic Grey


Well I discovered this Basic Grey challenge blog by way of my blogging buddy Chris who is their new Design Team member. Today was the first challenge and the theme is Buttons. Couldn't resist - any excuse to use Buttons. I used Basic Grey papers from the Periphery range, my holly and script cuttlebug embossing folders, some Xmas stickers, K&Co sentiment and of course lots of buttons. The large button my mum had for years so it is quite old and I added the little gold rondelle
