Anyone for Cricket?

Good morning! 
I have a really quick card to show you today, which is for the One Layer challenge over at Less Is More this week

Sports or Excercise

Now this was tricky as one layer for me as it involves colouring directly onto my card blank...not something I am overly confident with! Anyhow, this is what I made, and I'm actually pleased with it! 



I chose a simple(ish) image to colour so there was less to go wrong! It's a Lili of The Valley image coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I finished it using a piece of Card Candi for a cricket ball. I dotted gold pen in two lines for the stitching...looks cool doesn't it? The sentiment is from a fab set by Personal Impressions. I cut it out using my Stampin' Up! Word Window and attached it to some Whisper White baker's twine, also from SU!.

Ok...I have to go to work now, then the panto, then dinner out!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! :)
