Make a Wish

Here is a card that i have made using a penny black image called, Team Teddy.
Well I have to say that for me.. someone that finds penny black very intimidating to colour.. I really enjoyed colouring this one… took me an age mind.. but i had fun..

I have followed a fabulous sketch that i found on Stampavie and more.  and get this there is a colour challenge over at Truly Scrumptious of Brown, Pink and Green; so i have joined in with that challenge too Smile
I have used some gorgeous papers from my minds eye, designed by Jen Wilson and is called Laundry line. I went around some of the papers with my sewing machine in straight stitch and zig zag stitch.. The large ribbon along the bottom is from Stampin up, and the ticket die and sentiment are by Whimsy Stamps 
This card is a little larger and is approx. 7” x  7” I have decorated the inside to compliment the front.. Smile
Have a fabulous day and thank you so much for dropping by .. hugs Rach.xx

So adorable...I love the image Rach, you have coloured those characters to perfection. I don't think I could make a large card these days, I find it hard to get the balance right but that might just be my lack of creating...

Have a fab day

Hi Rachel, thank you so much for your kind words on my blog... all those sympathy from everyone makes me feel a bit better. Just now I tried to make a translation in english because people from spain told me google translator didn't do a great job in translating what I wrote.
Also I would like to thank you for answering my question... I'm going to try to make some shade on my next image!
big hugs, jolanda
