Summer colouring for Virginia's Challenge

I saw that Virginia has started a Summer Colour challenge over at Virginia's View  and the card I made today fits the bill.   


I took a page from my colouring in book, that I had coloured with Faber-Castell pencils and photo-reduced it.  I trimmed it and matted it onto some blue card.   I added a sentiment from Altenew's Label Love.   I really loved the page I had done and was really pleased with how this turned out.  There are several other pages in the book that will work as well. 

Hope you are all having a great weekend and getting some crafting done.

What a great idea, Dawn! Your page looks beautiful as a card. I think that's why I've never got into the whole colouring book thing because I'd always want to use the pages for something! Jo x BTW, The Snoopy stamp is called Snoopy's Chopper and it's an oldie from Stampabilities.

Dawn this is a stunner. Your colouring is amazing, and I love how you have copied and reduced the page to make the card, and then let it take centre stage.
