Basic Grey Challenge #20

Hi

I've entered the Basic Grey Challenge this week, where there is a little sketch to follow. Now I do just love doing sketch challenges, and this one was no exception.

Now what I've done is not exactly a card, it's more of a picture as it doesn't open up. Why, you may ask....well something went wrong when I was scoring the card, and I'm not going to embarrass myself by telling you what, so there!!!




Now I thought I wouldn't give up on it, and carried on. I'm rather pleased with the result. The papers are from the Sultry collection, and I just love those bright bubblegum pinks, and rich chocolate browns. I actually do love this now it's finished, and thought I might turn it into a 'rainy day book.' You know, a book of my favourite images...something I can look at on a rainy day to cheer myself up. A bit like a minibook.
Might post the finished result, if I ever get there.
Take Care.

Fabulous, love the papers and of course I love the WOJ image she's coloured beautifully. I agree with Ila is would work lovely for front cover of a book.
