Time to Relax

These weeks just fly past, it's time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge, this week I decided to have a bit of a change and make a card using Walter the Owl.  This card could be for either a male or female but I think I will probably give it to my brother in law for his birthday.

This week we have a fab sketch provided for us by Shell:

The theme for the week is -  add 3 or more brads or eyelets, but don't forget you don't have to follow both the sketch and the theme unless you want to, one or the other will do just fine.

The image is called 'Garden Weekly' and is available from Willow Designs, I coloured him with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  The papers are 'tourlondon' from NitWit Collections and the card stock is Core'dinations.  The brads and ribbon are from my stash and the sentiment stamp is from Wild Rose Studio.

I have also decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

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

One Stitch at a Time Challenge 109 - Bright
Craft Your Days Away Challenge 43 - Metal (red brads)
Ooh La La Challenge 103 - Bold and Bright
The Secret Crafter Challenge 181 - A man's card

Thank you for visiting today.
