BasicGrey Soleil Blog Hop


Welcome to the BasicGrey Soleil Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Kelly Noel's blog. I am so thrilled that BasicGrey asked me to join in on the fun today! :)

The bright, unapologetic hues of light dancing through the atmosphere, refracted from a prism or reflecting off the water are captured in Soleil, a collaborative collection by BasicGrey and Sassafras. This line is both serene and invigorating with its harvested-from-the-earth fruit and flower colors like soft lavender, juicy peach, tangerine, blueberry juice and watermelon. Let its calming yet spirited nature inspire your creative soul. 


The yellow chevron pattern across the card is trimmed from one of my favorite papers from this collection, Yellow Umbrella. I embellished my card with a mix of accents from the Pins and Tags as well as the Die-Cut Paper & Canvas Flowers. I just love the texture that both of these items add to the card!
