BasicGrey Serenade Blog Hop


Welcome to the BasicGrey Serenade Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the BasicGrey blog.

The Serenade Collection captures the refinement of bygone years, where tea was served with crumpets and your dinner guests retired to the parlor for sparkling conversation. Full of refined grace and delicate simplicity, you’ll love adorning your projects with Serenade’s layers of petticoats, bustled tea gowns and prim parasols.



The focal point on my card is a gorgeous floral sticker from the Element Stickers sheet that nearly covered the entire front of the card. The sentiment was created on a strip of vellum -- first I white embossed the word "beautiful" from the Beautiful stamp set and then added in some Alphabet Stickers to complete the sentiment. I love mixing products to create my own sentiments -- it adds such a unique touch!
