Great Britain at it's Best

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Wow wow wow not only is the garden looking great, but so is my tan, went to a fabulous adult bbq yesterday and sat with some great peeps with lovely conversation and had a great time, hope you are all enjoying the weather too.

Today I get to show you a card that I was going to use for a class at Grimsby Crafts, however due to the amount of colouring and size of colouring space decided this was not really the best card and image to use for that, so I get to show you it and it will be showcased in the Grimsby Crafts shop.


So here it is
I made a birthday card, using the matching papers for this image available in the shop.


 The base layer is  a royal blue, I used the grand nestie smaller circle to sit the image on and used the matching scallop circle to frame him. The bunting is cut from one of the pages in the paper pad.

here is a close up of the image coloured in copics with some Atyou Glitter pens to the fine line areas

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
