Basic Grey meets Vintage Picnic

I loved the new Basic Grey Lemonade patterned paper the minute I saw it at my local scrapbook store. (Eclectic Paperie also carries it online). The colors are so fresh and fun but yet there's a hint of vintage to it too. I paired my paper up with the wicker basket, flowers and a birthday sentiment from Vintage Picnic. I stamped the basket onto a scrap of the patterned paper and paper pieced it. The flowers were stamped onto Kraft cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch markers. Vintage buttons in Spring Moss and Lemon Tart are tied with Rustic Cream Twine. Ribbon is Hibiscus Burst in the bitty dot pattern. Machine stitching gives a homespun feel to the card. Mini scallop edger punch is from EK Success.
Ohh, I'm just swooning over these pretty colors. Fall will be here before we know it so I have to get my fix of pretty flowers and fruit punchy colors.
