Good evening. I've made a card this evening for a couple of challenges using a fab freebie that I grabbed a while ago called Milly in the rain from the lovely Janet at Pink Gem Designs. Thankyou Janet, really enjoyed using her :)
I have coloured the image with Promarkers and cut it out with a circle nestie, Paper's are DCWV Citrus stack, Sentiment and adhesive stones are Papermania, ribbon is from Hobbycraft, x-cut flower punch, EK success corner punch and Handstitching.

The challenges I'm entering are...

A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge 22 - Sketch by Rebekah( Thanks Rebekah, really enjoyed your sketch!)

Cupcake Craft Challenges - Zesty Colour Combo

Well I'm off to do some commenting while I watch Spring Watch, I love this programme :)
Enjoy your evenings xx
