stamptacular sunday challenge

...right thats the keyboard and mouse sorted out.....hopefully!! this is my entry for this weeks stamptacular sunday challenge which is to use only the colours pink,green and brown not a combo i would normally pick but thats what challenges are all about ...getting out of the comfort zone ...

the papers are basic grey 'sugared', the image is 'charlottes horse' by whiff of joy, coloured with promarkers and cut with the peony and circle nesties, the punch is the martha stewart embossed zigzag and the gems are kanban and the ribbon from fantastic ribbons.
Thanks for popping in

off to try my luck with a lottery
