Sketch Saturday Challenge #53 - Birthday Week!

Hello to you all! I have been a terrible blogger once again. I can only apologise. First of all, I have been enjoying the wonderful sunshine. We don't get much of it so I was making the most of it. Also, my wee boy hasn't been all that great so he's keeping me quite busy. Anyway, I've managed to squeeze this card in for the challenge over at Sketch Saturday. This one is for their birthday and each DT member is having a candy as well as the usual Saturday Challenge.

For this one, I have coloured my one of the lovely Miss Anya images I was sent by the lovely Helen. Thank you so much for these. I have used Basic Grey 'Bittersweet' papers. Ribbon and pearl brads from my stash. Sentiment is Hampton Arts (again, lol). The image is coloured with watercolour pencils and Distress Inks.

This was my second attempt at this card and also at the image. The colouring on the first image was absolutely terrible so I started again and then, it didn't go with my papers so I had to start the card from scratch, lol!

Hope you like it
