Things With Wheels - The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge 28

For my bloghop post please click here

Good morning! It's time for another Challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox - where has the last fortnight gone?!

This time the theme is 'Things With Wheels' and our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo who are offering 7 digis to one lucky winner!

Gus is one of my favourite Bugaboo characters, and here he is on a child's ride!

I love the sentiment, which came with the image.

I had to colour the toy car in British Racing Green, because my hubby's first car was that colour. I used Promarkers (the list is below). I Glossy Accented the car and Gus's spectacles and added green stickles to his party hat. I used a Nestabilities Deckle Rectangle die to cut him out.

The papers are K and Co 'Hopscotch' I think the paper with the old-fashioned toys on it is so sweet!

Here's the inside view, also using papers from the same pad:

The chevron striped ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl. I used black half-pearls from my stash in the corners. The sketch is one of Dawny P's

Trundle across to The Squirrel and the Fox and see what my talented teamies have done, they will inspire you!

Thanks for looking!

Promarkers: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush; Cool Grey 1 - 5; Cornflower, Powder Blue, China Blue, Sky Blue; Pine, Forest Green, Grass; Lipstick, Poppy
