Flying By

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
It is that time again for the next challenge 

for the 

where the theme is


being hosted by our very talented teamie Dorte

our sponsor
where one lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher

anyway here is my inspirational piece, but do hop over  to the main challenge site to see the rest of the amazing inspiration from my sister meeces :)
I made a birthday card
It was one of the choices of images I had, and my preferred one. I used grey as the base colour and contrast along with peach tones to match the papers.  The lace I got from my recent craft event shopping and the flowers are airbrushed from my stash.  The sentiment is Woodware and it sits on a nestie ribbon/banner and all finished off with those beautiful pearls from the Hobby House.

Here is the image coloured in copics with some shabby white fran tage on the image plate.
Do hop over and join us for the challenge :)
