Sketch It Saturday - Relax

Hi everyone.

It's Saturday!  Andy is out with Shannon, looking at new cars - we maybe replacing ours, we will see :-)

Emily has just got out of bed - hey Saturday is relax day :-)

I have been in the craft room - say Yay!

For my card today I am using the March, week 4 sketch at Viva La Verve.

Our Nikky, at Polkadoodles has been at it again.  I can't believe she has another new release for you.

And here is my card.  I have used a pre-coloured digi, also available in black and white for you to colour, as are all the digis in the Polkadoodles collections.  More links below.

I love the detail on these digitals and Nikky's amazing colouring!  Decided to make it look 3D by doing a little decoupage.

For the inside I used the same papers.  I had a spare digi cut out, so used the branch and squirrel to decorate the inside too.

Here is an angled shot, to show more of the depth.

I inked all the edges of all the layers with CTMH Sorbet.  A little ticket sentiment to finish off.

I have not over embellished this, as I wanted the focus on that fabulous image.  Everything on this card is from this wonderful new release.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
