My best boy

Hi, here is a card I have made for Simon Says Stamp on their PCP colour challenge group.  Its a first for me, I'm on PCP but have never loaded images to join a challenge on there.  Maybe I've just gotten the complete wrong end of the stick?!
This is another super image from Mo, its called 'you're my best boy'.  The colour challenge is to use dark brown, teal and vanilla (cream) but as I've distressed the edges of the cream bazzil it's not quite as cream as it could be!  I played with the tension on my little cards sewing machine as it only does straight and zigzag and I wanted someone a little different.  It's come out a bit like a herringbone (doesn't that take you back to sewing classes at school!).  IRL the teal is actually a rich teal and not the blue that it appears here, sorry!
I'm going to go and try to join the PCP challenge with it now.

Two gorgeous cards Keryn, i love mo's images too.
Your colouring is so perfect mrs. Those sentiments you mention are so good Keryn, I had bought the rectangle ones before but found there were too many I just wouldn't use but this set is excellent, lovely shapes and really useful sentiments and not too big.

This card is also a little beauty ! Your shading is fabulous and I love these colours together. I too need to find a different stitch to use. Yours has worked out really well, and yes it does take me back to sewing classes...lol....Sue C x
