C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 42 Nursery Rhymes

Onto my last post of the day. We have a new challenge at C.R.A.F.T. This week we want to see your creations to do with the theme of nursery rhymes. Our sponsor is Gina from Your Special Delivery who is offering some digi images to the winner. Some of the DT have also worked with one of her fab images.

For my card, I've used Humpty Dumpty, a digi image from Digital Delights, coloured with promarkers and yellow Stickles, and sat on his wall. I've followed the fab sketch at Passion For Promarkers. Papers are BasicGrey Origins, matted onto brown Bazzill, with all the corners rounded with a punch. I've inked the edges with distress inks, and pierced holes with a Tim Holtz ruler and a pokey tool, which I've joined up with a pen to look like stitching (at least I hope it does). The sentiment is from HOTP, ribbon is recycled from another card, and the gems are by Martha Stewart, coloured with Henna promarkers. All on brown 6 x 6" Bazzill cardstock.

I'm entering this card into a few challenges:
Charisma Cardz Challenge 11 - Something for the Kids
Pixie Dust Studio Challenge 14 - The power of 3 - (there are 3 square gems)
Gingersnap Creations Challenge 44 - Birthday Greeting
Artful Inkables Challenge 16 - Birthday card in celebration of AI's birthday
Digital Tuesday Challenge 50 - Green
Passion For Promarkers Week 43 - Sketch
Fussy and Fancy Challenge 6 - Green
Our Creative Corner - Colour Challenge of yellow, pink, green and brown (the other colours can be seen clearly, apart from the pink - it's in his cheeks, and mouth)
Raise The Bar Challenge 8 - Go green - (lots of green on the card plus the ribbon is recycled)
Simple Doodles Challenge 13 - Show a little green
Simon Says Challenge - A splash of green
Creative Craft World - Promarkers
