Love is in the air

Cheered up last night when my sister in law phoned to say her fella had popped the question whilst they were in New York and of course she said yes!

So found a sketch challenge by Sharon on Creative Card Crew and set about making them a congratulations card.

And here it is:

Greetings Farm Digital image, Pro-Markers, Nestabilities, Ribbon, button, heart punch, Doodlebug papers

I found it a bit difficult to start with, I knew I wanted to have a red theme but couldn't get the colours and patterns right. I tried swirls, flourishes, all sorts but settled on spots and stripes - must still be in the mood after yesterdays Papertake challenge!

The image is a digital download from The Greetings Farm which took me four attempts to shade right with Pro-Markers. I'm desperate for some Copics to get more tone on tone colours. The sentiment is Doodblebug rub ons on a Nestabilties tag. I love the image, wanted to use it as my sister in law isn't traditional or old fashioned and likes quirky things.

Having a day at home today, no work, cancelled going to toddler group and intend to spend the rest of the day playing with Zac, I've just fished out some card and his crayons so we're going to attempt a colouring session! Might help bring my blood pressure down a bit.
