Scribble and Scrap Challenge #12 DT Card - Archie with a Flower

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all ok and surviving the absolutely horrendous weather.  We've been so lucky where we are but I really feel for those who are being hit hard again and again and again.  It's non stop this year.  Also thinking about all the millions of animals who will have been killed or who have lost their homes, especially the burrowing ones.  :o('s challenge time again over at Scribble and Scrap.  As always it's Anything Goes and the random drawn winner will receive a £15voucher (£20 if they have used a Scribble and Scrap product!) to spend in the Scribble and Scrap shop, and the Top Three will receive a £5 voucher each.  Great prizes, especially with all the new papers I have been adding to the shop over the last week or two!  Not only that but there are two Archies (cute bear character) including one which is only just in the shop today...the one I have used for my card...he's my little guy and I had a lot of fun drawing him.

And on to my card:

Awww...isn't he cute?  Archie can be found here.

I coloured Archie with the following promarkers:

Cool Grey 1 & 3, Walnut, Cocoa, Sandstone and Blender.

My colouring's not all that this time as I had to use a different card which didn't blend so well.  I need to stock up on Supersmooth!  My bad!  

As well as Archie, I have also used 3 papers from Scribble and Scrap's Lacy Florals Digital Paper Set as well as one of the matting colours from the same set to ensure the perfect match.

AND the sentiment is also from Scribble and Scrap - Basic Birthday Sentiment Digi Set

The brads are from The Hobby House, the flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid and the faux pearls are from my stash. 

The inside is decorated to match.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:  - Anything Goes - 23/2 - Anything Goes - 21/2 - Anything Goes - Use Brads - 20/2 - Add some bling -

Don't forget to pop over to Scribble and Scrap for the challenge and to see the rest of the DT's fabulous inspiraitional projects.

Take care everyone and happy crafting!
