Two Challenges in One!

This week has been a little crazy and I have been busy with other non crafting things....so have got behind with the challenges.....so a little combining is in order. This card has combined the challenge on the Basic Grey Challenge Blog to use Black, Grey and one other colour, and the sketch over on Sketch Saturday. For my main image I have used one of my favourite Miss Anya stamps anc coloured her with my new Copics.
The papers are Basic Grey "Ambrosia", so I have gone with a Black, Grey & Orange colour scheme. I have also used some Core-dinations cardstock for layering. I have used my Nesties to cut the circle and the scalloped circle, the flowers are a mixture of Prima and Craft Fairy that I have attached with spacers and PaperMania pearl brads, and intertwined is a spray of pearls that I got in the wedding section of HobbyCraft. To finish off I have added some Stampin' Up "Basic Gray" taffeta ribbon and some random orange sating ribbon from my stash, a sentiment by Craftwork Cards that I have inked the edge with chalk ink, and finally some black pearl bling.

I have also decorated the inside with the leftover scraps....as you can see below.
Thanks to the ladies over on Sketch Saturday and Basic Grey Challenges for the sketch, theme and their inspiration.
