An "Any Occasion" Card

I'm working my way through this Basic Grey paper pad...My husband thinks my card looks like a Christmas card, so I guess it's going to go in my Christmas Card stash for this year. It was not designed as a Christmas card, but I guess the color scheme lends itself to that theme.

This is my inspiration card:

And here is my card:

I haven't entered my projects into very many challenges this year. I'm going to do better at that for the rest of the year. This card has been entered in Challenge #18 Anything Goes~Creative Cutting Challenge

Shapes: I used my Silhouette to draw and cut the circle. The banner shape is from the Silhouette Store (Design ID #33147). I used my paper trimmer for the rectangles. 

Dies: Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and Sizzlets Little Leaves (SU!)

Paper: Basic Grey Fact & Fiction line

Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Fired Brick, Forest Moss, Iced Spruce, and Vintage Photo

Misc: Want2Scrap pearls, brad and lace from my stash

Thanks for stopping by!
