Willow Sketchie Challenge # 3 - Back to Basics

Hi everyone, hope your Thursday has been good and you have managed to get lots of crafting done? As promised, I have completed this little scalloped card for the Willow Sketchie Challenge . The theme this week is 'Back to Basics' with an added hidden message. Had lots of fun making this little card and as you can see from the two photos, my hidden message is on the flower .... Products used : Bo Bunny papers, Hero Arts 'Japanese Dolls', Craftime red ribbon and a large red paper flower. I have added a small sun charm and have coloured in the image using some of my new 'Copic's' and some 'Promarkers'. Yes, I have gone down the 'Copic' road, after playing with some yesterday. Just a small set to start with, 'Pastel's', but will add to the collection I am sure. They are so easy to use and glide across the image. Right, well am off to go answer all of my emails (26) which have slightly built up, sorry for not getting back to you all earlier, been trying to do a few a day, will reply to all this evening. By the way, I had to give in and eat the blasted mini-eggs, the temptation was just too strong, lol. xxxx

Great card and such a cute image.
PS A while ago you showed an interest in joining an ATC Swap. If you still are then I've set up a new blog with all the info.

It would be great if you did join in as the ATS that have arrived already are great and the people who get them will be chuffed I'm sure
