it's sketch time

Welcome to the first challenge of the year over on Polka Doodles.
Thanks so much to all of you who joined us throughout 2011 we're all hoping you'll join the fun again this year starting with this fab sketch from the boss lady herself:)

...but there's a catch!!!  
Your card has also to be in shades of grey.  She doesn't do anything by half does she??

Anyway, my handsome lad will be 30 later this month  ( I know, I don't look a day over 21) so this was the perfect opportunity to get his card sorted instead of a last minute rush which is normal for me:)
I used  the Not For Girls Definitely For Men CD and started by colouring up the image using my copic markers.  Then It was a simply a print job with these fabulous papers.  I also loaded the plain grey papers into my graphics programme and added my own text to match ( or as near as I could) so it all matched.  Some brads, eyelets and a bit of white cord for the embellies and I was sorted.
So, that's my effort girls, do play along as there is also a fab giveaway this week from Letraset.
Ta muchly for popping in
