Windy Day

I've used another LOTV image on this card, it's of a very cute bunny getting swept about in the wind, very apt for today! I got the idea for the layout from Bev's All the Things I Love Blog. The theme at Allsorts this week is 'Colour Bingo' and it includes an option of Pink and Green (with Ribbon or Lace) which is one of my favourite colour combinations. I have used my promarkers and was particularly pleased that I had recently invested in some ultra fine nibs as some of the image was quite fiddly. Now all I need is a nib for every pen so that I don't have to keep swapping them about!
