Double Challenge

After my unsuccessful day yesterday I thought I'd start early with my posting today. I'm entering this card for this weeks Copic colour challenge and also this months Pink Gem sketch challenge.

The lovely papers are double sided and you'll definitely see some more cards from me using them,they are from a new range of papers in at Scrapbook Sisters by My Minds Eye and are called Jack and Jill,Quite Contrary. I love the quality of My minds Eye and I especially love the way the edge strip has the very usable strip showing the reverse of the paper.
The lovely little chap holding his flag is actually Autumn Max by Pink Gem Designs but I took away his conker and made him hold the flag instead. He doesn't seem to mind,lol. It doesn't show too well in the photo but I've taken a tip from Karen at S.S. and popped the circular greeting by rubbing around the centre using an embossing tool over a foam pad.(in my case I used the rounded edge of my glue runner) Will invest in a large headed embossing tool when they come in next!
Hope you have a lovely weekend,
thanks for stopping by,
Julie x
