365 Cards Favorite Manufacturer Challenge

It's probably no secret who my favorite manufacturer is! The challenge today at 365 Cards is making me own up to it! We are supposed to make a card that is all one manufacturer. And I used...drum roll.....

Yes, it's Basic Grey! You knew who I'd pick! I used the Urban Prairie line...again. I just love this paper. It's one of my favorite BG paper lines. They hit a home run with this line!

I did cheat a bit and picked stamps from other manufacturers. I only have Christmas stamps from BG. (I know! Tragedy!) The greeting is SU and the bird is Inkadinkado. My favorite stamps right now are these Inkadinkado ones that came from Costco! I wish I had more of those! I have no clue where those "black pearls" came from...well I got them in an old Polkadot Whimsy kit, but don't know where Michelle got them.

There is no cardstock in this card. All the paper is from BG. Scary, huh?! I used a sketch from the Spring 2009 issue of Stamper's Sampler Take Ten as my inspiration for this card. I had not seen an issue in a long time, so it was fun looking at this new one!

Well, who is YOUR favorite manufacturer?

  8. Gloria your card is beautiful!! That bird image is to die for. So Urban Prairie from BG is going on my list of must haves. I have seen some beautiful cards made with this range from BG. If you have Kaisercraft over there then they have black rhinestones and black pearls. Thankyou BTW for your wonderful comments on my card today Gloria, I very much appreciate it.

  12. I love this set from Basic Grey too!!! I am loving Lime Rickey right now, but I also love Ambrosia. Their papers are awesome, even the "solid" colors are interesting with the staining, scratching, and inked look. I think Urban Prairie is one of the best though. I didn't know Basic Grey sold stamps, thank you for enlightening me!
    Oh, enough about me, your card is delicious! I love that image with this paper. Great work of heart!
