Penny Black Challenge and Basic Grey

Its a sketch over at Basic Grey this weekand this is my take on the sketch

The papers are old ones I found while tidying up and they are called Sublime

The teddy is a die cut I bought off ebay a long time ago

The cahllenge at penny Black this week is BLACK WHITE and ANOTHER COLOUR and for this I went for yellow.

Not normally a colour I would go for but thought I would give it a try- the image is thanks to Sue

Wow, what a great card using my sketch! I love how you've incorporated the tag into the design, and used some of the 'older' BG papers. Thanks for joining the BG challenges this week,
Anthea :)
