Sewn Together DT Challenge #5

Hi Everyone

Sorry this challenge post is late today - I had scheduled it to post at 10am this morning but something must have happened cause I can't even find the post!

So it is time again for the Sew Many Cards weekly challenge. The design team was challenged this week to make a card/project that uses one of the cute donkey digi stamps. I really enjoyed the challenge this week.

For my card I chose to use the donkey hiding behind a cactus - he looks so sweet! I decided to go back to one of my first loves and use my distress inks etc from Ranger/Tim Holtz for this project and 'shabby' up my background papers. As usual I coloured my donkey with my copic markers and chose papers from a Papermania pad called Spring Burst. I found some chipboard letters in my craft stuff that were the same colour as my papers but they kind of blended into the background so I sanded the edges and use Vintage Photo distress ink on them. To finish the card I used a border punch from woodware and added some satin ribbon and buttons from my stash.
Here is a closer look at this little cutie!

So now you have see my take on the challenge please visit my team mates to see what they came up with and of course we want to see your challenge projects too, just visit the Sew Many Cards blog for all the details. I can't wait to see your ideas!
