PTW challenge – at last!

christening card ben

I have made this card tonight in a bit of a rush for my baby nephew Ben’s christening tomorrow.  I totally forgot to make one so I went scouring the challenge blogs for a nice easy sketch to give me some inspiration.  I haven’t had a chance to enter any challenges for so long as my DT commitments take up any crafting time I might be able to get!  Anyhoo, I thought I’d check out PTW as it’s one of my favourite challenges and Dawny always has great sketches on there and lo and behold there it was – perfect.  I have used some of the gorgeous PTI papers I bought recently (from the Hodge Podge paper pack) and found this gorgeous digi imge over at Mo’s Digital Pencil.  I am becoming addicted to her images and already have a few cards lined up over the coming weeks featuring some of her amazing artwork.  I have used my beloved ProMarkers to colour the baby, namely Tea Green for the dress ( which is a perfect match for the paper I might add – how cool is that?) and vanilla, ivory and blush for the skin. 

Right, I Sky+ ed X Factor earlier so am off to watch.  TTFN!
