Going Grey with ScrapCreations- Use Basic Grey Paper with Think Spring Theme

Have you seen the new challenge over at Scrap-creations?  Every week Kristen challenges her blog readers and her design team with a theme to use with our favorite Basic Grey papers.

This week our challenge was Think Spring- flowers, etc.  Of course flowers are the first thing I think of when I think of Spring.  I don't have a lot of flower beds at my house, I don't have a green thumb.  I do enjoy receiving flowers though!!!  

Stampotique has some very original looking stamps and I was immediately drawn to these stamps because they are so different and there is such a variety of artists that you are sure to find stamps you love.
This card actually uses some paper I received at CHA from the Basic Grey make'n'take.  I chose to take mine apart. It is the Lily Child from the Kioshi paper collection.

ETA:  I never seemed to finish this post last night, so will just leave it where it is, bonk myself over the head and remember next time to re-read my post before hitting publish :-)

Card details:
Stamps:  Simplicity is the ultimate satisfaction and Branch from Stampotique originals
Cardstock: Lily Child from the Kioshi paper collection, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Inks: Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum
Accessories: Purpilicious ribbon from Clear & Simple Stamps, prima flowers, rhinestone brads
