Join us for Friday Challenge #3!

It's Friday, August 15th and time for our third Friday Challenge - Basically Beautiful Supply Challenge!

The Hostess: Suzy

The Challenge: Make a card, scrap layout or altered art project using BasicGrey paper that has been cut following the design shape of the pattern in the paper.

For example, if you use a floral patterned paper, cut one of the flowers in the design of the paper to use on your work. You can put that flower on the patterned paper or cardstock flat, or pop it up with dimensionals.If you do not have any BasicGrey paper that has a shape large or distinct enough for you to cut out, no worries! Just use the paper with a punch or scissors to cut your own shape then. The whole point is to have fun The only rules are that something on your work must be cut from BasicGrey paper, and it must be made new for this challenge.

Have fun and be sure to use the code FC3 when you upload your work to the gallery so we can see all of your fun submissions!
