Penny Black Saturday Challenge - A Sketch

I love the sketch this week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, Tracie did a fantastic job! well done Tracie!! For my card I used a little Teddy image which I think Cathy sent me, they're all in my image box now so I get a little confused cause I got so many sent to me :0) I coloured him with distress Ink and used glimmer chalks on the background (although this doesn't show on the photo unfortunately). The papers I've used are from the Basic Grey Eva pad and I've added loads of little bits to the card, I thought I'd try something a little more decorated after the simple style I adopted for the cards I made on my craft night. I'm going to be desperate for brads and flowers soon, may have to have a treat although I'm trying to be careful at the moment...

Thanks for looking as always, I'll be back around possibly Sunday night, if not then Monday when I've finished my working weekend (just waiting for the lottery win then I can be a full time crafter lol!!)



Love Becky xx
