#124 Use a Digi

The challenge over at One Stitch at a Time is a nice easy one - Use a Digi. It was my time to choose an image for my teammate Josephine and myself. I chose Blue Tit on Rowan by Ike over at Stitchybear Digital Stamps Shop.

My card blank is by Craft UK. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut it with my Spellbinders square nestie before using Distress Ink on the edges. The backing paper is stamped with freebie stamps that I got in a magazine a few months ago. I used Memento Ink in Cocoa and stamped them randomly over the paper before matting the paper on to greeny/gold card from Papermill. The green ribbon is from my Australian stash.

Our sponsor this week is Stitchybear! Check the challenge blog for details of the prize.

I'm entering my card in to the following challenges:
Craft a Scene - In the garden
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Jackson's Digital Expressions - Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations - Animals or Insects
Craftymess Challenge - Birds
