Give Thanks, Copic and Basic Grey Challenges

Good Morning! I hope everyone is have a good start to the week.

I made this card for the Copic Challenge and the Basic Grey Challenge.

The Copic Challenge was pumpkins. I keep trying different things on my pumpkins. I like the way these came out. They look much better IRL. I think these were easier than some of my other pumpkin stamps because they were smaller but practice makes perfect.

The Basic Grey Challenge was a sketch. I had problem with this one. I had every piece of orange and blue paper pulled out and finally decided on the striped and solid from the Lime Rickey pack I think. I had many papers pulled out so I'm not sure what paper came from which pack it came from.

I wanted to add a little sparkle so I painted stickles on the flowers and added some on the ivy. I folded the shutters out a little to give the card a little more dimension. Once all was done I like the way this came out. I have been trying different things to get my pictures to come out better. Please bear with me while I find the perfect solution.

Thank you for visiting my blog. If you like my card let me know what you think.

Great card Peggy - fabulous image and great colouring. The Lime Rickey was a perfect choice and love your sparkly flowers. I find getting a decent photograph is harder than creating a great card (lol).
Thanks so much for playing along with us at BG.
