Tuesday Throwdown challenge #204

 If anyone would like to follow my blog you can either click on the 2 red squares next to the 'join' button and then click follow or, copy the link and paste it into your reading list.  For some reason my button has never worked :(

Good morning to you all.  Today challenge #204 'Take us on vacation' goes live over at Tuesday Throwdown with this weeks sponsor, The Stamping Boutique.  Head over to the challenge blog to get all of the rules etc

I chose to work with a darling digi stamp called KK the Skater who was a dream to colour up. 

Now I know it's bright but It was a blazing hot day here in the UK (doesn't happen often) when I made this card so I couldn't use traditional colours, and this little lady looks fab and funky to me :)

I've made a side stepper to give the card some shape and used card from my stash to mat under a gorgeous pearly 12 x 12 paper called Christmas Confetti from Reminisce, which I've also used to decorate the inside of the card.

I've used dies from Sizzix and  Crafts Too and a few gems around the card along with an Xcut circle die to make a bauble.  I used my spectrum Noir pens to match the colour of the bow to her scarf.
