Anything goes at pennys

Hi crafty bloggers,

Its time for a new challenge at pennys. Our theme is anything goes and we are sponsored by Lacy sunshine stamps.

For this challenge i have chosen to use the image Lizzie and Claude

Heres my card


I saw an image on the lotv site of a card made by Jen Nelson and she had used all her scraps from the promises paper pad to make a patchwork quilted look. I have done this with the perfect pair pad. 
I have coloured the image using promarkers and distress inks.

I am taking a two week break from my duties at Pennys as im going away to Majorca so have a fun two weeks without me.

Hope you like it,
Happy crafting
