Fab n Funky - Check it out

Welcome back, fo a new challenge with Fab and Funky, where we are being sponsored for the first time by the talented Sherri Baldy. I am already a fan and have lots of her digis and stamps, so the hardest part was deciding which image to use to make my card and, in the end, I chose this lovely lady.

I also wanted to try something a bit different, colouring wise so, on this image, for the very first time, I have colored everything in Spectrum Noir pencils. The over all look is much lighter and softer, but you can still get lots of lovely shading by blending out with the blending solution.
The challenge this week is to use gingham, so I have gone for a splash of gingham backing paper which happens to match beautifully with my ditsy flower paper.

The image itself is quite sizeable so I have kept the layout quite simple, to keep the focus on the cute little girl.

Lots of other lovely challenges to enter today… here they are:

Well that's all from me today. Don't forget to pop over to Fab N Funky to see the other lovely DT cards and join in with a bit of 'yeeeee-haah!' gingham!
