My Time to Craft Challenge - My Sketch!

There is a sketch to follow this week at My Time to Craft, and I hope you'll all join in the fun as the sketch was designed by ME!! It's my very first one so it feels a little bit special lol!!

And here is the card I made following MY sketch lol!!
I have used this gorgeous image of Tilda and Edwin which was stamped for me by the very kind and wonderful Linda and have coloured them with pastel Pro Marker colours. I did a bit of embossing and added an imaginisce sentiment.
I don't normally do pastel cards, I prefer bright, but I like how this one turned out!
I hope you can all find the time this week to have a go at my sketch!!
As an incentive I will be sending a mystery Christmas Prezzie to someone chosen at random who enters my sketch!
Love Becky xx
P.S In other news, I took Dylan to the Health Centre today and found out he's a whopping 3ft 5ins!! If he follows the line of the graph he's on at the moment, he's going to be well over 6ft in adulthood!! And we're going to see a nursery on Monday as he's eligible for 12.5 free hours so my little baby may be leaving me for 3 mornings a week!! How will I cope?? Lol!!

I love this card in the pastel colours, feels really snuggly iykwim! Oh I remember how nervous I felt when Ria first started at playgroup but it was great except it seemed that no sooner had I dropped her off done some shopping and some hw then it was time to go and get her again! Enjoy your time. xx

Jac said...

Also meant to say love the sketch and I'll definately be having a go and thanks so much for the lovely card. xx
