Crafting For All Seasons Challenge #8 - Bingo

I'm a little nervous as this is my first card for Crafting For All Seasons Challenge Blog as a Design Team Member.

For this challenge we got to select a gorgeous digi image from Angelique at Sliekje digi Stamps.  I had so much trouble deciding what image to use as they are all so gorgeous and FREE!  How wonderful is that .. all those sweet images right there ... for FREE!

I eventually decided on this sweet little Sleeping Kitten.  He's so cute I just want to pick him up and give him a cuddle.  I didn't notice the little mouse on his back until I started to colour him ... double cuteness!  As this is a bingo challenge you need to select 'a line' ... I chose Ribbons, Glitter/Shine, Flowers.

I have coloured this cute snoozing kitten with copic markers in the following colours:-
Kitten - E71, E74 (R00 & R20 for ears)
Vine - YG63, YG67
Flowers - V12, V15, V17 
The large hearts are pink spica pen with crystal ice Icestickles over the top.
The small hearts are in pink spica pen.
Oh and not forgetting the little mouse in C5 and R20

Around the outside of the oval image I ran a purple ink pad and then attached it to some sparkly purple cardstock.  I'm not sure where the green cardstock on the bottom is from or the ribbon .. they are just out of my stash.  The flowers are paper flowers from the local craft store with some tiny tiny tiny beads stuck to the middle flower.  The butterflies and the flowers on the purple section are actually ribbon ... I cut them out from the ribbon (I played around with colouring them with my copics but I think they look nicer plain).

So there you have it ... my first DT card ... what do you think?  I would love to hear your comments and I would also love for you to give this Bingo challenge a go ... which line will you choose?  Looking forward to checking out your entry ... I'm sure it will be amazing!  Head on over to the challenge page and check out all the great DT entries and be isnpired :)
