Colour Challenge at Fitztown this Week

This week at Fitztown we have a colour challenge.  The colour choice is pink or red and white or silver.  As you can see by my card I chose red and silver for my card colour.  The digital image I used for this challenge is called

  • Fitztown digital image
  • Silver marker
  • Silver embossing powder
  • Copic Markers
  • Sentiment stamp from my stash
  • Silver ribbon
