The Sky's the Limit!

This card is a two-fer......in other words, I've made this card with 2 challenges in mind! The first challenge is a sketch challenge for Whimsie Doodles. You needed to use one of Whimsie Doodles digital stamps, which I've done. Both the turtle stamp and the greeting are Whimsie Doodle digital stamps, and I've taken a few liberties with the sketch so it very loosely resembles it!

The 2nd challenge is for The Pink Elephant blog challenge #24, which was to use ANIMALS as the theme.


I used markers to colour the image and a Spica gel glitter pen on the balloons and hat (hard to see!). The patterned paper is by Heidi Grace, and cardstock is Stampin' Up. I also used an Out of the Box technique for the image.
