Good Morning, this post is running a day behind but better late than not at all right.
Yesterday marked the start of a new challenge at Charisma Cardz. This week we have a sketch for you so be sure to head over to the blog to get the sketch.

We also have 3 brandnew teammates joining us this week so please be sure to stop by and say hello to them.

For my card this week I opted to use this great image from Teddy Bo thinking he would be perfect for a masculine card. I coloured him with Copics starting with the fur so that I could add some texture to it by usingg some of the Copic blending solution on a piece of old towel and holding it to the coloured image. The finished result is hard to see but if you zoom in you will notice that it really adds a wonderful touch.
The papers are from the recent PB&J collection from Basic Grey which is sure to become a favorite of mine. I loved the clean lines of this sketch and did not want to go to town with the embellishments so I opted to raise the image on foam tape and added a little sentiment tag which can be tucked behind the image.

Here is an extra peek so that you can see the tag.
I hope that you will join us in the challenge, I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your creations.
Happy Crafting!
