Getting good at combining challenges aren't I..... lol. This card is for Sketch Saturday, Passion for ProMarkers, Papertake and Whiff of Joy.I was stuck on what to do with the background of this card as I don't have any BP that would match this colour, so I got my distress inks and cut n dry foam out and distressed straight onto the card.
