Elzybells Challenge 19 - Sketch by Rachel

Hello, I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. It's been fabulous sunshine here for most of the day - but now it's overcast and looks like it might rain.

This morning my new Elzybells stamps arrived so I just had to make a card to enter for their current challenge. At this point I must stop to say a big 'thank you' to Elizabeth at Elzybells for her wonderful customer service.

The challenge is to follow this fab sketch by Rachel.

This is the card I made, unfortunately the weather became overcast before I photographed it so I might try and take a better photo if it's sunny tomorrow.

I used the Elzybells 'Gardening ted' stamp which I coloured using Prismas and Polychromos. The cardstock is DCWV and the DP is Basic Gray Boxer. I used square and circle nesties, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and my Fiskars scalloped lace border punch. The sentiment is a free stamp that came with this month's Docrafts Creativity magazine - I've used chalks to colour this (but on reflection I think I should have left the centre white).
Thank you for looking. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and for all of you in the UK enjoy your bank holiday too!
