Red Phone Box

I just love, love, love, the old red telephone boxes, so when I saw the Cupcake Craft Challenge #190 and their Best of British inspiration photo, I just knew exactly what I wanted to use from it! The telephone box image came from Beyond the Fringe (which has lots of fab freebie vintage images!) and I coloured it with promarkers - poppy and ruby, sponging a bit in the windows with a light blue to make them pop a little more.

The papers were freebies in a magazine I got a while ago - I honestly can't remember which one it was! The ribbon and pearls came from my stash. The ribbon has been sitting around largely untouched since I got it before x-mas and the pearls are new from my craft fair trip a couple of weeks ago and added the sentiment from Stampin' Up.

I used Sketch 'N Stash sketch #86 - Doreen's Sketch

And I'm also submitting to this weeks Passion for Promarkers challenge #147 - Bright and Light.
