Challenge Card

Good afternoon everyone. You are likely aware it is still teeming it down so another card beckoned me.
I used Bugaboo's image 'Reading Time' once again and coloured it with my PMs using skin tones and two brown shades for the book with Blossom and Dusky Rose for the clothing. Using my Nesties Inverted Scalloped Circles I cut a glitterboard shape and layered it on to the A5 card which is printed in Funky Hand's Love'n'Stuff from their Funky Word Books CD. Using another plainer paper from the same range on the CD I tore different sized shapes for matting down the side and across the top and bottom (with the help of one of those fancy rulers I recently purchased).
I added spotty ribbon that actually came from a very large nationwide cheap store (they wrap it around their PJs). The sentiment was ruined as our naughty kittens trampled all over it before it got a chance to dry so am pretty peed off with this!! But as you all know I cannot scold them - thye look at me with those gorgeous green eyes that say 'we didn't mean it Mummy'.
This one is going into the following challenges:~
Passion for Promarkers 'Books' Challenge No 54.

The next few days I am going to attempt to tidy up my blog - try to find out how to make it look better and to make the posts look a bit neater than they are. I will be googling a lot methinks.
Thanks for looking X
