Another Challenge ... or Two ... or not!

I was approving some messages earlier and when my friend Ann commented about the number of challenges I've done this week, it suddenly occurred to me that I had almost missed posting my Pink, Green and Brown entry for The Pink Elephant Challenge EEEK! ... SHOCK!! ... HORROR!!!

However ... thanks to that timely reminder, (cheers Ann), I'll just about make it before the deadline and therefore keep my 'attendance' figure for TPE at 100% ... pretty darn good for me.

Not only that ... but the card was also supposed to be perfect for the Sketch Challenge at Truly Scrumptious ... except I didn't read the directions properly and therefore didn't do handmade buttons ... so it's a non~starter there. But no matter - I like it anyway!

This card was actually made on Tuesday - I just didn't blog it for some reason.
Must've been having a severe case of 'numptiness' that day ... but hey ho ... not to worry.
The papers are from K.& Co. ... 'cos I luv'em, luv'em, luv'em ... and the stamped image is Penny Black's 'Guess' again because it's just so cute.
Whispers Brush Markers were used for the colouring in and the 'faux stitching' was done with a piercing tool and a white gel pen.

Sorry I can't show the inside decoration as that would spoil the surprise for the intended victim ... errmmm ... I mean recipient, but if I remember then I'll show it at a later date.
Time for beddy byes now methinks 'cos it's silly o'clock again and tomorrow's a busy day.

Can't believe you were up blogging at that time Max!!! Your card is gorgeous - that faux stitching with the gel pen is so realistic - it looks great.
