Guest Designer Card


I have been asked to be Guest Designer over on the Basic Grey Challenge blog and feel very honoured the work the ladies do is beautiful and I get to join them for two challenges 'Yipee'.
The challenge for this fortnight is a gorgeous sketch and you also need to use a Basic grey item in your card. Now it took me ages to decide on my papers because there is so many lovely ones but I went for 'Sugared' in the end because it went with the image I had coloured. I have gone a bit shabby edged with this card and softer with my colours also.
Notice my stitching around the circle that was definitely a tongue stuck out concentration moment I can tell you but it worked lol.
The copic colours I have used are:-
E000 E00 E02 E11 R20, E11 E13 E18 E15 E50 E51 E53 E55 E57
Yg93 Yg95 Yg97 Yg99 Yr23 R81 R83 Rv10

Not only is stitching around a circle and "tongue sticking out moment" but I find it is a "breath holding one" as well LOL!!!
