NEW Basic Grey Blog Sketch Challenge

First off in honor of all of those who lost loved ones on this day ten years ago, my sincerest condolences. My thoughts and prayers are with you on this monumental day. May God bless you in ways you never imagined and may none of us ever take for granted the wonderful blessings in our lives.

On a much lighter note, I just wanted to share a layout I did this weekend. There is a brand new blog out there by a not at all new company, Basic Grey. They have been an industry powerhouse for seven years now with cutting edge design always at the forefront. I have long been a fan and was so excited to see their new blog and then a sketch challenge too! So I decided to give it a try, here is their sketch:

Here are some close-ups:

Materials Used: Basic Grey/Indian Summer, American Crafts/ribbon, e. Prima/gem & pearls, Stampin Up/Ruby Red marker, Archival Ink/Coffee- inked edges
Be sure to check out Basic Grey's new blog here. As usual I would love to hear what you think!
