One Stitch at a Time Challenge 92

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we want you to use a digi! That's all - easy! Our sponsors this week are Stamping Boutique

My image this week is from Barbara Jensen Designs, and it's called, not too surprisingly, 'Parrot'. It's available at Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.
I coloured the image with Promarkers, and cut it and two matt layers with my petite oval Nesties. I had lots of fun with all those blues! The background papers come from two sources. The floral one I've had for a very long time! It was part of a Sizzix pad I bought years ago! (It was the first patterened paper I'd ever bought.) The plainer paper is left over from one of my sessions with various Mica sprays. I must've used most of the sheet, but there was enough left for this card. I seem to remember wrapping the card in cling film to get a subtle pattern from the various colours.

My embellishments were all cut using Marianne Creatables dies, and were cut from Craft Creations Sparkle Paper.  (That's very reduced at the moment, but I'll have to see if I can justify the postage cost before I buy anything ...)

Hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Ooh La La where they want sparkle,
Paper Creations where they want us to 'bling it up' (hope my shiny flowers with gem brads are bling-y enough!)
The Crazy Challenge where anything goes,
Papertake Weekly where anything goes,
Divas by Design where anything goes,
Dutch Dare where they want things with wings,
Crafty Catz where anything goes,
Hotshot Craft where they want us to use Promarkers,
Totally Papercrafts where they want anything but Christmas.
Sweet Stamping where they want things with wings.
