Let's mix it up - Basic Grey Challenge...

I have been meaning to join in with this challenge blog for such a long time, but never seem to have enough crafting hours to participate. This week though I decided that I would make time and as I needed one of the dreaded 'man cards' I thought I would used this challenge for it.

As the title suggests you have to use more than one range from Basic Grey on your card. No problem - granola and archaic papers and the green brads on the corners are from the Wassail range. Ooh and I have just realised that the word 'Happy' was made using Phoebe stickers.
I found these really old letter tiles in my stash rubbish box - I throw bits and pieces in the box and then have a good sort out every now and again - I quite like them on this card.
And here is a card made using up more of my very old papers, this one is for a challenge on JB forum to use green and pink. As you can see I am still ploughing through my button collection trying to use some of them up.
