Susie Dancing Squirrel



I made this card following the lovely sketch on the Stampovie Challenge am not sure if this qualifies for there challenge or not !! The theme on the Creative Card Crew Challenge is black/white/silve/grey, this is the 1st time I am entering this challenge but I love monochromatic cards so this was right up my street :-) I also tried to make it fit in with the Charisma Cardz Challenge who's theme is 'Little Black Dress'.I tried to make it as dark as possible and still show 'depth' !! I know the tutu has photographed 'blue' but it isn't really, it's very dark grey with shimmer !! honest !! :-)

I used a gorgeous download image from the Digital Stamp Oasis Susie the Dancing Squirrel :-) I will add the text later when I know what it's for !! :-)
I used all black/grey/white card, stardream, coredinations, hammered,,,, :-) A little black ribbon and thats all ! The image was coloured with copics :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
Don't forget to check out my blog candy before you leave :-)
