#104 Use a Digi

This week the theme over at One Stitch at a Time is Use a Digi and you can buy loads of super digis over at  the Stitchybear Digital Store.

There will be two prizes presented this week - the first from our sponsor who, this week, is Cropstop who'll be providing a £10 gift certificate.        

The second prize will be from Stitchybear who will be presenting the mini collaboration to another winner.

My digi is Deep Sea Duncan by Claire of Hope Jacare Doodles over at Stitchybear. My friend's son is a Deep Sea Diver so I can see this card finding a home. Thanks, Claire, for this wonderful image.

My card is a large ivory coloured square from Craft UK. The backing paper is by Costco and it's matted on to Papermill's silver card which was supposed to shimmer like the sea. I coloured my image with Promarkers and after cutting it with a Spellbinders label nestie I used Distress Ink round the edges. I made a 'harpoon' with a cocktail stick and bound some rope round it and added a silver card point. The shells, scattered on the floor of the ocean, are from Beachcomber. I generated the Happy Birthday sentiment on the computer and cut it with nesties.

I'm entering the card into the following challenges:
Creative Craft Challenge - Boys will be Boys 
Paper Pretties Challenge - Make a masculine card
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes 
Aud Sentiments - Happy Birthday 
Sarah Hurley Challenge - Birthday Celebrations
Polka Doodles - For Boys or Men
