BasicGrey Challenge 31 card entry


Wow hasn't this been a fantastic sunny day & the garden has beckoned me yet again but just making time to upload my card for the BasicGrey Challenge 31, which this wk. is paper piecing. Not very happy with this card & was too tired last nite from more gardening to make another image so have kept this as it has to be in the post 2morrow. This is a get well card for a niece who was rushed into hosp. with pain which turned out to be appendix, so she had keyhole surgery & will be home very soon fingers crossed, I hope that's the run on ill health.
Well back to the card WOJ image coloured with Prisma's & have used paper from the EVA pad for the umbrella, used more DP Eva pad for the rest of the card. Green card from stash thro. C/B DIY flowers, rain drops have glossy accents, I feel its a bit basic, but didn't want to overload the card with too many embellies. TFL.

Hope your all enjoying the great weather???
Byee for now Hugs Christine xx
