I cased a card!!!!

Hello Everyone.

My lovely Bloggy friend Greta (GG Creations.) is celebrating her 1st anniversary of her Blog, and she has put out a Challenge to her followers to case one of her earlier cards, and although I do not case cards, I thought this would be fun, as Greta's style is so very different to mine, I chose this one:

She has used her copics to create a graduated Bg. I did not use copics for the simple reason I am not proficient or competent with these pens, I am in my element with my watercolours and this is what I used to re-create the Bg.

My Stamp is from  Stampers Anonymous, and the sentiment is Penny Black.
I had to add a Butterfly as this is a smaller card than Greta's and I felt it needed more... of course!!!!

If you  want to join in, Greta is giving away a little prize to 3 winners, you have until March 10th, and you can view her post here to enter.

And a little addition I thought you may like, you may have to indulge me here....
Precious got into my make-up!!!!
You can tell by her facial expressions, that she is a real character!

Thanks so much for visiting,

Thank you so much for taking time to enter my challenge & celebrate my first year. Your encouragement & friendship have a lot to do with me having this anniversary!
That is one adorable little lady! These pictures are a treasure!

Beautiful take on Greta's card, Sue! I am not a copic user too and I would have probably use watercolour or colour pencil to create the bg!

Looks like Precious is having a great time "painting"!
