Truly Scrumptious Challenge #28 & Copic Colour Challenge #56!

Afternoon all! I hope you are well, I've got a stinking cold and feeling very sorry for myself! We're getting ready to put our house on the market so I spent all Monday clearing out the loft and I think the dust started it all off! Anyway, enough of my moaning! It's Double Challenge time! Scroll down for my Copic Colour Challenge card, because firstly I've got my card for this weeks Truly Scrumptious Challenge to show you. Once again we have a fabulous sketch for you to play with the and optional extra is to make a Quilted Background. I loved making this background, I've used yet more PP papers chopped into squares with a little Stitches stamp to join the edges. For some reason I immediately thought to make a baby card when I'd decided the background. This weeks prize is from our very own Sharon's shop Truly Scrumptious Crafts, there's loads of lovely ribbons, charms, buttons etc, in fact that is where the embellishments on my card are from! I'm also going to sneak this card in for the Cute card Thursday challenge which is Celebrations xx

Two fantastic cards Beth. I love the quilt effect you have created - you must have the patience of a saint to stamp all those stitches!! I hope you're feeling better soon.
