Sweet Stampin' - create a scene!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Ooh I found this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' a bit of a...well, a challenge really!  We'd like you to 'create a scene', and we're sponsored by Cuddly Buddly and our monthly sponsor The Ribbon Girl.

Sooo... I was really struggling with this one!  None of my ideas were working out, and then I noticed Paula's announcement that Pollycraft was reopening... went to have a nosey in her new-look shop, and she had a great background scene that I thought I could put together with an image I bought (and hadn't used yet) when she was closing Pollycraft almost a year ago.  I'm still not very happy with my card, but it's not as bad as my other attempts lol!




Items Used
Digi stamps - Pollycraft
Colouring - copics & prisma pencils
Papers - Echo Park Summer Days - MCH
Twine from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - happy mail
MAWTT - one for the guys
Delicious Doodles - something for the boys

I'm off for a little blog catch up... Hope you all have a great weekend :o)
