Pickles - 'Sharing the Love' Thank You Card.

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok.  I didn't have a day off yesterday but I was busy doing other crafty things so didn't get to making a card for the blog.  I have today, though, and I've used Heather Valentin's lovely 'Pickles - Sharing the Love' digi, which is ONLY available from her Lacy Sunshine store.

Please be aware that some people are selling Heather Valentin's digis even though they are breaking copyright laws by doing so.  It is theft and, sadly, people who buy or receive for Heather's digis for free from these people are also unwittingly breaking the law.  That's not good and it's not fair.  Please support the artist and not the dodgy sellers by only buying directly from Heather at Lacy Sunshine.

Anyhoo...here's Pickles!

Who said that a cheeky chappy like young Pickles can't have a pretty card to sit on?  He certainly looks very pleased with himself in this setting anyway...and he's thanking me!  Lol.

The Pickles image has been coloured using my promarkers as follows:

Forest Green, Bright Green and Lime Green
Ice Grey 1
Cool Aqua
Sunkissed Pink, Rose Pink, Baby Pink and Blender.
Walnut, Chestnut, Cocoa and Sandstone.

The matting layer is core'dinations cardstock (can't remember which).
Papers (absolutely gorgeous) are from Wild Rose Studios (again...forgotten name, sorry).

The sentiment is a foiled, shop bought one.
Flowers cut from core'dinations and fixed with a brad...they are actually a garnet colour but look purple in the pic.  I think that's my dodgy lighting.  Shall have to try a lightbox, I think.
Garnet faux gems from my stash.
I think Pickles looks quite happy having his balloon ride...just hope he doesn't fall out or crash!  

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:
