The Sugar Bowl Challenge #2 - Three

For the 2nd Challenge at The Sugar Bowl you have to think in threes, three patterned papers, three embellishments and three images for an extra bonus entry into the draw for a scrummy prize, I managed the first two, I just hope I'm lucky enough to win with one entry!!
So here is the card I created. I must thank the very lovely Jill for the scrummy image she sent me, it was even embossed and everything!! I coloured it first with water colours, then pencils and finally wax crayons!!
I decided on a red and black colour scheme from the off as this will be Mr Becky's Valentine's Card and I wanted it to be striking!! The three papers are a mix of K&Co, HOTP and Sandylion, and my three embellies are the flower, wire and brad. The lettering is from a HOTP stack, I think it's the Masculine one.
Thanks for looking and see you all on Monday for the second challenge at Sketch and Stash!
Love Becky xx

Lynsey said...

Hi Becky
I love your card and the image is coloured in beautifully!
The font I used was 'Everytime I Miss You'. I think it was from a freebie from an american scrapbook site but not sure which one. Its on my old computer so I havn't got it anymore. If I find it on a site again, I will let you know.
Hugs Lynsey:)
