BasicGrey Challenge #25

Oh dear, I'm so late with my card this week - good job the boss is unavailable and offline ;o) !!!!!

Wonderful Martine has given us a brilliant sketch to work with this week at the BasicGrey Challenge Blog and here it is ....

I have followed the sketch to the letter apart from a couple of additions.

The base card is white Bazzill.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey "Porcelain" which have been cut with nesties and punched with the family silver !

The image is by Leanne Ellis called "Fly Free" which I have coloured with ProMarkers. Henna and burnt umber (hair), rose pink and blossom and marsh green (dress), ivory and blush (skin), pastel yellow and pumpkin (flower), meadow green (leaves), cinnamon (bird), burnt umber (boots).

The brown flowers are Papermania and the paper roses are from HobbyCraft.

The pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

The charm is from e-bay.

I also managed to decorate the inside of my card very simply with nestie cut ovals and a sentiment and flower stamp which came with my Leanne Ellis stamps.

I am looking forward to seeing your take on Martine's sketch.

Join me back here tomorrow for Colour Create and a very interesting challenge for you this week ! Yes, I am in time with this one, the boss is stricter ! teehehehehehe (you know I'm joking hunny bun !!).

Have a great Saturday evening. Thank's for looking !
