One Stitch at a Time Challenge 124

This week at One Stitch at a Time, the challenge is simple - use a digi! That's it. Any colours, any theme.

We're sponsored by
And this week, I got to work with an image from Ike's Art called Bluetit and Rowan. Now, I'm not what you'd call a nature lover, so please forgive me if my choice of colours isn't true to life!

I coloured the image with Promarkers, and added highlights to the berries with a Sakura Souffle pen. The paper is from a Springtime pad I bought a few years ago - I love the unusual colours in it. I decided that the image is perfect for a 'unisex' card, so I decided not to add flowers or anything that would put off any of the men in my life. Instead, I just tried to echo the branch with berries by using a Spellbinders swirl and some red beads.

Hope you can join us.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crazy Amigos where it's a free theme,
Jackson Digital Expressions where anything goes (with a digi),
Crafty Bloggers Network where anything goes,
Emerald Faeries where they want swirls. (Hope my swirly paper with die cut swirl fits the bill.)
Crafts and Me where anything goes,
Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude where anything goes,
The Poodles Parlour where anything goes,
ATCs and Cards with Attitude whre anything goes,
Crafty Mess where they want birds.

Hi Josephine, and I agree, this card would suit a man or a woman. Great idea with the Sakura souffle pen, makes the berries look real.
