Tart and Tangy Tuesday Challenge

The challenge this week has been set by our DT Co-ordinator Heather and it is to use the Stampin Up colours of Cameo Coral, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. Now don't worry if you don't have the exact colours - I didn't and here is my card.

As you can see I have chosen to use the gorgeous tortoises which you can find here and will cost only $3.
The papers are from My Minds Eye and were a surprise Birthday present I received from Suzy - thank you hun. They were perfect for this challenge and I teamed them up with some Core'dinations card stock. Of course I have distressed everything using scissors and ink - I do love this technique and I feel I am getting a bit more confident with it now.

I have used the great sketch at Moving Along with the Times shown above, which I loved.

As you can see I have blinged up the tortoises with lots of sparkly gems. I have also used my nesties - all two of them. The sentiment is from a set called Fairy Delight.
I am also entering this card in the DT Call for a new challenge blog called I Love Digi. I only started to use digi stamps when I started my blog last July. I have found them to be so versatile and really fun and easy to use.
The other challenges I am entering are Your Next Stamp where they want anything sparkly and
KL Stampin N Scrappin where they would like you to use your Nesties, punches or dies.

So would you like to join in? Just follow the colour challenge this week and use a Rusty Pickles image then visit the blog and leave a direct link to your creation. The team will pop by and leave some encouragement and one lucky person will be drawn randomly to win a Rusty Pickles image.Check out the rest of the team there links are in my sidebar.

Have a great day everyone.
