Heads are Rolling!! - at Rusty Pickles!



That got your attention!! Not literally, I hope. Well the sun is out the sky is blue but I have the dreaded lurgy as does my youngest!!! But nothing is going to stop me making a card - except maybe my daughter with her continual interuptions.
The image I am using today is from Rusty Pickles and can be found here isn't it fun, what a cheeky cat.

Oh and by the way, would you like to win a set of 12 Copic Ciao's then check out the Rusty Pickles site here and if you would like the chance to win 72 then check it out here and you can read all about these offers in my post here.

Anyway back to my card, I have used the sketch at Moving Along with the Times which was drawn by Clare and is shown here :-

                                             

I have coloured my image using Stardust gel pens with a bit of water, plus the aht is a watercolour crayon. I glittered the hat with crystal glitter. I then mounted him onto some embossed white glitter card - the snowflake folder on my cuttlebug. This is then mounted on some pale purple mesh with white dots on - I thought it could be snow!!! Finally I have mounted that onto the silk effect plastic I had in my stash.
                                        
                                               
The back ground paper is from my Cute Companions Winter Tales CD Rom. The ribbon is from my stash and the snowflakes were punched from white glitter card and one from silver miri card.

The other challenges I am entering this card for are :-

Charisma Cardz - anything Christmassy,

Daring Cardmakers - Mainly white (Hope I have enough white!)

Stampin' for the Weekend - Lilac, Purple and silver

Saturday Spotlight - Hats on,

Everybody Art Challenge - Christmas theme,

Kaboodle Doodle Challenge - Snowflakes and

Practical Scrappers - Christmas Card.

There we are, finally as I have been working on this for too long!!!! Please let me know your thoughts.

Hugs

That’s one ‘fun’ card!

I love the image that you’ve used and I know that given the right amount of snow to build a snowman, that’s just the sort of thing that my BoJangles would get up to.

Really cute….well done!
