Basic Grey Challenge - Sketch

Computers!!! Great when they're working, but when they do one .......aaaaaaaaaaargh! Spent most of yesterday trying to figure it out then had to call a man in who brought it back this morning (yes, in the snow!) all nicely working again *Juliet touching wood*.
So, here is the Basic Grey challenge card for this week, which was created following a fabulous sketch. Papers are Archaic which I haven't really used before, but I do like them. Blue Core'dinations Cuttlebugged, Edwin coloured with Ranger Distress Ink, the sentiment is a stamp and I made the 'Birthday Boy' flag with a cocktail stick.


I hope you don't have to go out today and can enjoy the picturesqueness of the snow. Most schools are closed around here and kids are out sledging and building snowman - doesn't it take you back to those halcyon days?
Have a great day, whatever you're doing. xx

Love your card Juliet, your colouring is gorgeous and I love the paper you used, I love it for boys cards too. The little flag is a great idea and perfect with Edwin. Glad you got your computer sorted and hopefully it's all ok now. I agree with you about the halcyon days LOL there was a lovely atmosphere here yesterday with everyone out playing. It's great how a bit of snow makes everyone smile! Chris x
