One Stitch at a Time Challenge 100

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we've got two sponsors for our 'anything goes' challenge.
who are offering the winner three Promarkers, and
who are offering all the Stitchy Bear images used by the design team this week! So, if you want to see what's included, check out the design team projects for this week.

And don't forget, if you're not lucky enough to win it, you can get all those images and papers free when you spend $7 at the Stitchy Bear shop.

My image this week is from Lil Diva, and it's called Fun in the Jungle and it's available here.

Now, my DT team mate, Hazel, chose this image for both of us, and generally, I think we've got pretty similar taste in images. But, I had some concerns about using this one, as it looked most suitable for a child's card, until I gave it some thought, and so I added a sentiment.
And suddenly, I had a much more general image - perfect for all sorts of cards. That's one of the things I love about digital stamps - it's so easy to add something like that. Use any fonts and sizes you want, and never be constrained by the bits of rubber you happen to own. So, I was all set to make a fairly general card with the image, but then my daughter saw it, and she told me that my younger son (who's twenty later this month) would love it. I was confused for a moment, but then she reminded me that he and she get a bit silly whenever he's home from university. When they were much younger, they used to video various soft toys in amazing adventures, and as a result, all the toys had names. While it's been many years since they videoed anything, they still refer to the various toys, and they all live in my daughter's bedroom. So, I asked her to go and get a few of the favourites, and took a photo. A few moments in Photoshop Elements and I had a second sentiment added.
And so the card became an easel-style card.

The paper is from Papermania's Capsule collection, and the die is from Spellbinders.
