Basic Grey Challenge

Hi all, hope you are having a great day!
Today I  decided to have a play with Basic Grey papers, actually I love to use them a lot:)

The theme for this challenge is Paper Piecing, here is the page to visit if you would like to join in:D This is my first entry to the Challenge and there is a Design Team call going on if you fancy it?
I was inspired to actually have a go at this challenge by Sylvia-Anne  @ Poppy's Papercraft Patch.  Pop over and visit I'm sure she'd love to see you! Lots of inspiration there:D
The papers I've used are  all Cappella, BG of course:D
I liked them so much that I've cut them all up and used them behind the Tim Holtz film strip, which is very springy but I beat it down, I'm not going to be beaten by a bit of plastic! The air surrounding me was blue;D
Not much bling on this card, I sort of felt it needed something so I added a brad with a pearl. Her earrings and bracelet are Platinum Stickles
Pearl Brad from Le Blanch, QVC
Stamps all by Creative Expressions
Film strip, Tim Holtz
Lacy border by Kimberly Poloson, Filigree borders for Fiskars retired( I can't find it at Fiskars)

If you could see the mess I've created, you wouldn't believe it, Oh dear :(
Have a lovely afternoon people:D 

Huh, I've just worked it out why everyone thinks I'm a D  or a Debbie = I leave a smile ( :D ) often at the end of a sentence, my fault, so sorry, I will stop now. Gosh! that took a long time, I must be a bit thick, derrrr!

Fabulous card - a very elegant image, and the papers are perfect. Love the soft colour scheme and the background stamping. It's so kind of you to give me a mention - I'm chuffed to bits! (Can I call you MC, or maybe you could offer some candy for the first person to guess your real name?!!)
Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
