Papertake weekly, etc

Probably not the best use of a lovely sketch, but I had to make this one for an order - I'll have to use the sketch again another time to make a nicer card!

I've used a 'George' download from Charmed Cards & Crafts, coloured with promarkers. The gingham paper is one I found in a drawer, not sure where it was from. The cardstock is coredinations, and I've embossed the centre piece with the spots & dots folder and the corner pieces with the swiss dots folder, and then sanded it back. The sentiment is computer generated.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I've posted some candy on my blog today to celebrate going past 5000 hits - it's pinned at the top if you'd like to have a look :o)

Oh you silly bean, it is lovely. I think that background is just perfect. Brilliant for the banner round the hat of the diver.
