My DT card for DewDrop Craftz challenge

Good Morning ladies.

This is my DT card for this month DewDrop Craftz challenge. The challenge this week is to use green and Lilac. I used a sketch from CPS card sketches which is shown below.



What a great sketch again another one I really enjoyed, beginning to sound like a broken record here haha.

I used basic gray papers but I can't remember which set they are from, I love basic gray the quality is incredible. The image is a DewDrop Craftz image and can be purchased here. I coloured her with copic markers. I love this image because no matter how many times you use it you never get the same look as you can colour pretty much everything on it.



I used my score pal to create the striped effect in the backgrounf - I had seen this on another card a while ago and really wanted to give it a try. I think it is quite effective. I also used my new Martha Stewart edge punch on the DP which looks great against the black bacground. The ribbon is from Quixotic cards and crafts, I cant reccommend them enough they were so quick posting this out to me, I really like it think I need to get some more in different colours now :)

Anyhow don't forget to hop along  and join in the challenge at DewDrop Craftz.

I am entering this card in to
CPS Card Positioning systems - Sketch
One Stop Craft chellenge blog - Fancy borders or edges
Crafty Creations - Textures - I used my score pal to give texture to the cardstock
