Last Challenge of 2009

Good afternoon all, I take this opportunity to wish you a great evening and a Happy and Prosperous New Year xx

This is my final card for 2009, it is a tri-way challenge for

I started by locating some Lemon and Lime coloured papers and then located a Sugar Nellie Stamp.  I then got to work on the Sugar Bowl Challenge Sketch and located the new item, that would be the copic paper that I just ordered and received, thought I would try it, but will not be ordering again as it does not allow my normal blending as well.  I coloured the image with my copics and then added the charm.  Whilst laying out the sketch all pieces worked fabulously together, however I made a mistake when sticking in place and could not lift the first placed shape down to allow the final one to sit under the top lip, so a little out on the challenge.  I added a flower to allow the charm to hang and hoped that this would resolve the previous hiccup.

Here is the overall card

The floral embelishment

The insides of the card with my usual little black and white image

The closeup of the copic coloured image - if you follow me regularly you will be able to see that the shading has not blended as well on this paper.

Well that is me for 2009, see you all in the new year.

Thanks for looking
