Our sponsor for the challenge is:
I chose a sweet digi from My Heart Pieces called Sleeping Santa. An odd choice of digi for an 'orange' theme, but by this time of year, I usually need to get on with my Christmas cards!
I first added the sentiment and orange frame in Photoshop Elements before colouring the image with Promarkers, adding a little extra shading with Spectrum Noir pencils. The background paper is from a CD Rom I bought recently - the Joanna Sheen/Ivory Cats one. It's definitely got more cat images than I'll ever use, but the backgrounds are fabulous - lace and patchwork being just two examples. I altered the shading of this background from green shades to orange to match the theme. To finish, I added a couple of die cut corners which used a Joy craft die.
I hope you can join us this time
