"He's not heavy he's my Brother!"

Hi everyone on a very wet and windy Sunday, hope all is OK with you in blogland. Now as my regulars will know I have been given the honour of being a member of The Rusty Pickles Digital Delights Design Team. My fellow team mates - all listed under the Rusty Pickles blinkie - are a fab and talented bunch, so I am very proud to be there with them at the start of this new venture. Gosh that was a bit of rambling to get round to telling you that the image I have used today is a Rusty Pickles corker.
I have used the sketch at The Pink Elephant which is shown below.

I love these shapes and it gives me the opportunity to use the template from the Polka Doodles CD Rom - Sugar Birdies. I have cut out a circle in green glitter card and then punched a smaller scallop in the Simply Brushed paper. I then mounted the image using foam pads on to this paper.

I have coloured the image in using my watercolour crayons - I know they are not the usual colours but I was experimenting!! Finally I used some ribbon across the middle from my stash.

I am entering this card some other challenges as follows :-

Cupcake Crafts - Digital images,

Caardvarks - Colour it, a digi,

Dare you to digi stamp - Glitter,

Bee Crafty - Sparkle and a digi,

Creative Inspirations - Sparkle and

Simon Says Challenge - Animal Antics.

I hope you like it, oh and please don't forget my BLOG CANDY!
