Keep on Movin'

That's the title of this week's Pink Gem challenge and I thought that this little skater boy from their range was perfect to fit the theme.

I actually used this image to make some thank you cards after my son' s's so cute and really fun to colour too, as there's enough space in there to get a bit of shading practice going.

Anyway, it simple is as simple does for this card, focussing on the main image with a single paper matted behind it. The paper happened to be double sided and the faux ribbon that you can see is actually a scrap of the flip side....waste not want not as they say!

So, on to a few challenges that I would like to enter:

Make it Monday (link to follow)
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Southern Girls - The Kids are Alright
A Gem of a Challenge- Keep on Moving
I love Promarkers - Anything Goes

Well that's my first post of the day out of the way. I'll be back shortly with something a little more girly I think!
