Basic Grey and Spoonful of Sugar - a double challenge

Wow I am finally getting back into the swing of challenges, now that the boys are on the mend. These challenges fit nicely with the few images I have managed to get coloured whilst watching hours of Postman Pat, Bob the Builder and Thomas the Tank Engine while the boys were tucked up on the sofa.
The image was a gift from one of my friends, I am sorry I cannot remember who, I need to write peoples names on the back of the images as they arrive. I have coloured him in in watercolours and have added glitter glue to the buttons and the highlighted strips, unfortunately I am not sure that it shows in this light. The bcaking paper is basic grey from the Lily-Kate pad which I adore at the moment and I think works quite well as a winter background. The circle has been cut out using my friskars and put through my new clutterbug (brought for me by my wonderful husband) with the snowflakes folder and thus has squares and triangles on it, so qualifies just for the basic grey challenge this week. I have then edged the circle in silver sequins to add the bling factor needed for the spoonful of sugar challenge.
I hope that you like it x
