Challenge 36 - Patchwork

Good morning, it's Thursday, so it must be Charisma Challenge day. It's my turn to set the challenge this week and I've gone for the theme "Patchwork". You can intrepret this how you wish, I was going to cut up small squares for my backing paper, but when I came across this beautiful digi-paper by Summertime Designs, I knew I wanted to use this instead (a lot less fiddly too!). Apologies for the poor photo quality it was so bright and sunny yesterday (amazingly) that I struggled to get a photo that wasn't over exposed! Honestly you can't win sometimes, in real life the yellow is a much richer, golden yellow.

The image is a beautiful Sarah Kay image that I recieved in a swap, which I've coloured with ProMarkers, the sentiment is Stampin' Up! from the set "Simply Said", cardstock SU! Whisper White and Brocade Blue, flowers cut with a X-cut flower punch, brads, ribbon & heart charm all from my stash.

Hope you can all join in this week, we've got a fab prize from Squiggle Stamps who are our sponsors this week.
