A Quick Reminder .....

Good afternoon everyone, just a quick reminder about the challenge going on over at Willow Sketchie, it's my turn to host again this week and this is my sketch:

It's quite a simple sketch to work with and you can embellish it to your hearts content.  The challenge runs until 20:00 on Wednesday 25th January, so come on have a go you could win a voucher to spend in the Willow Designs shop, there are loads of Willow Designs goodies there including the new Polly Pickleberry CD and other items like ProMarkers.

This is a Tissue Box Cover that I made for the recent Create and Craft launch of the CD:

The papers and the image are all from the Polly Pickleberry CD, all I have done is ink and distress the edges and layer everything up.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers and cut it out so that I could mount it onto an embossed Spellbinders shape.

I added some ribbon around the edge of the lid, die cut a hole and added the scalloped edge with a smaller version of the Spellbinders die that I used for the image.  To finish I added some ink to tie everything together.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:

Digi Days Challenge 25 - Ribbons and Bows
DYSU Challenge 55 - Patterned Paper
Little Claire's Challenge 17 - Anything but a card
Little Darlings Challenge 15 - Favourite Colour - Purple
My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge 40 - Favourite Colour Combination - Purple and White
Paper Play Challenge Week 3 - Ribbon
CES Challenge 69 - Anything but a card

Thank you for looking today, don't forget to pop over and have a go at the Willow Sketchie challenge.
