The Pink Elephant Challenge # 37

Morning all...what dull dreary weather we are was damp and 'orrible here yesterday and it's pants trying to get decent photos of my cards...especially when it's wet and windy and I can't take piccy's of them in the garden!

Anyhoo enough of my card for today is for this weeks Pink Elephant challenge which is a sketch...I really enjoyed following this was nice to have an off centred image for once rather than me always plonking them in the middle of my cards lol! I've shown below the elements I have used on my card...I'm writing them slightly different at the moment so that I don't have endless paragraphs of me waffling on about the things I used on my cards...oops...there I go again lol!

Design Papers : Shabby Princess (Holiday 2006)
Green Card Stock : SU!
Image : Polly Craft Freebie (Cherry Kisses Snowball)
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Embellies : Card Candy, pearls and ribbons from my stash
SU! Scalloped border punch
Martha Stewart Snow-Flake Punch

Hope you all have a lovely day...only two more sleeps until the weekend :)
