Green & Yellow - are awesome colours for a card and make me think of home

Howdy mate :)  wink wink  Green and Gold are the colours for us Aussies .. so to use them for cards just had me thinking Australia the whole time ha ha ha......

The new challenge over at Crafting For All Seasons is
Green & Yellow
you will have heaps of fun with this colour combination and of course by entering your card in the challenge you could win a fabulous prize.

For this challenge we are being sponsored by :-
Bugaboo stamps  who are offering a prize of  Prize - 7 digital images
Tickled Pink  Prize - who are offering a prize of  2 digital images

I couldn't decide whose image to use ... I love both of these stores .... so I made two cards :)

 For my first card I have used this sensational Bugaboo image called Clyde Friend.  You get the gorgeous dragon image and the sentiment.  I know it is unusual for me to use a dragon (NOT!) .. I have another one of these Clyde's in my digi collection .... but I want them ALL!  He is adorable and a real pleasure to colour.

 Here is a close up of the adorable Clyde.  I have coloured him in Copic Markes and used some Spica Pens on the Ladybugs spots and on Clyde's toes, tail spikes and head spike.

 For my second card I used the fabulous Damon from Tickled Pink stamps ... I love these images (if you are a follower you would have seen MANY TPS images used by me).  I embossed the cardstock with a brick embossing folder ... Damon sitting on a stool and playing his guitar made me think of a grungy pub ... hence the brickwork.  Of course I have used my copics to colour Damon .... and yep there is probably a splash of spica in there too.
 Below is the inside of the card ... I really like this sentiment and I think it is fitting ...
"In a world where you can be whatever you want ..... be yourself"
I think this is great advice to us all :)

Thankyou so much for stopping by .... be sure to check out the Crafting For All Seasons challenge blog and see the other DT cards .... they are just wonderful!  You are sure to be inspired.
