So it's all over - the tennis that is!!!
What a brilliant final it was too. And
as it went on for sooooo long, I only
managed to fit in one card today.

But I did combine 2 challenges, so it
wasn't too bad. This one is based on a sketch from Friday Sketchers sketch 9. I also combined it with the Spoonful of Sugar challenge 6 which was to use circles on your card. Mine are on the paper which is from the Funky Meets Shabby Chic download (Funky Fairy). The ribbons are Poppicrafts and there is also a bit of glitter here and there. I have gone back to my tried and trusted watercolour pencils - like me they are cheap and cheerful lol xx I am perservering with the Prismas and I am starting to get results that I feel happier with.

For added detail, I decoupaged the flower. The sharp eyed bloglies will notice my happy accident which was not at all happy!!!
The second flower managed to get itself underneath some paper I was trimming and I managed to chop off some petals.
Whether this was a direct result of too many Pimms this afternoon (we were trying to recreate the SW19 atmosphere in our lounge lol xx) I wouldn't like to say!!
I'll leave it up to you to decide.

But hey, it's given it a bit of added interest!!

beautiful card, love the colours you've used. Wouldn't have know the little accident if you hadn't told us and I'm sure it couldn't have been the pimms.

What a beautiful card. This has to be the prettiest I have ever seen. Also, just wanted to say thank you for always putting Poppicrafts on your blog. You are so very sweet. I was thinking of you yesterday, when I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails. What a fantastic final. I have just watched the highlights again today... Sad I know, but I did enjoy it.
Big hugs,
