This looked better in my head!!!

I had the idea for this card and just had to make it. It took me ages to find the right papers but when I did the colours were perfect and I'm quite pleased with how the colouring went. (I think I'm starting to get to grips with my promarkers now.) But that's where the luck ran out!! I had trouble with the layout which was a sketch from Sketch Saturday. It wasn't the sketches fault- it was just that I couldn't get it to work with what I had! Looking at it now I think I should have trimmed the image closer or used an oval and put the sentiment on a separate piece so that I could overlap the image with it. Oh well- you live and learn!
I'm also entering this card for Passion for Promarkers 'Think of a Number' theme because of the countdown. The images and sentiment both come from my Murray and Ethel sets which really make me smile- I must make some more cards with them soon.
