I usually run for the hills colouring birds as I really dont have a clue about colours. I colloured with with my promarkers and mounted it on one of my spellbinder dies.

Mayzy Art does Creative Inspirations Sketch Challenge

Good morning it is hump day so half way to the weekend. Wednesday brings another challenge at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS and we have a new sponsor for you this week. Today should have been sponsored by Handy Hippo but sadly they where unable to sponsor us for the time being. This left the challenge at very late notice with no sponsor. So with a quick email to such a lovely and generous lady MAYZY GREEN who stepped in to generously offer not just  3 images to our winner but also images for the team.
Thanks Mayzy you are a diamond and you can buy her fab images here
This weeks challenge is a sketch oh I love Natalie's sketches. You can flip it, resize, but all elements must be on show and we can see the sketch to qualify.
Ok now which image did I pick from Mayzy's fab catalogue. This image is called Natsuko and comes from her round the world theme. Oh how I would love to see these in real life and can only dream of it. There gardens are just stunning and I can just imagine her walking to the garden.

I have coloured with my promarkers and used my Cherry Lynn flourish die, my M.S. round the edge punch 2 ribbons from local shop. small flowers from stash. The Dp has glitter on the flowers I am not sure if I managed to catch it on the picture along with the shimmer on the parasol from my glitter jelly roll pen. the paper is from First Edition called Love Letters. I used Distressed inks for the floor.
Well hope you like this card and please checkout the rest of the teams cards and have a peep at the amazing images they have used. Remember if you win you could be colouring your own images.
