Noah's Ark...

Good morning, lovely people!  I hope you're all having a happy Tuesday filled with sunshine!  Yesterday was the first real sign of Spring, with stunning blue skies and (slightly) warm sunshine - I hope it stays a while as the Winter seems to have been so long and grey!  Also, I love this time of year as you can see the days getting longer and the promise of what's to come with all the new shoots and Spring flowers!

Whilst looking through my folders for files to print and colour, I came across one that I didn't recognise and when I opened it, discovered one of the digis that I had chosen after winning over at Whimsy Stamps...a long time ago! (Slap on the wrist!)  So, I thought it about time that it got printed out and used on a card!...

This card came Top 3 at Creative Inspirations!  Thanks, ladies!
Also came second at C.R.A.F.T Challenges! Woo hoo!

..This is the ever so cute Noah's Ark from Crissy Armstrong at Whimsy Stamps and I teamed it with papers from Prima's Forever Young and Hello Pastel paper pads...
...I coloured the sweet image with my Pro/Flexmarkers and here's the colours for all you Letrasetters! :
Elephants - Cool Grey 1, 3, 4, Satin, Blush
Monkeys - Caramel, Cocoa, Henna, Champagne, Sandstone, Watermelon
Giraffes - Buttercup, Vanilla, Mustard, Caramel, Cinnamon
Ark - Ivory, Vanilla, Mustard, Glacier, Cloud Blue, Muted Pink, Tea Rose, Watermelon
Umbrella - Meadow, Leaf, Bright Green
...I followed another of Jen's fabulous sketches (I am addicted to these at the minute!) and this one is Deconstructed Sketch #3 but I changed the circle for a rectangular sentiment, which means 'Happy Birthday' in Welsh.  I highlighted the image with some crystal glitter and added a couple of polka dots buttons (said you'd be seeing more of them!) then finished with a printed insert.
I am trying to increase my stash of Welsh cards (as you have probably guessed) as I'm hoping to do a craft fair next weekend and of course, they are always the first to go.
Thanks for dropping by to see me and I hope you have a wonderful day!
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Add a sentiment (until 7th)
Anything Goes (until 6th)
Inspired by a Film - Evan Almighty (until 5th)
It's a Boy Thing! (finishes today)
One for the Boys (until 6th)

Oh my goodness, you have just reminded that I have this image too (that I also won) and haven't used it yet! So now after seeing your gorgeous card I must find it use it soon. Your colouring is fabulous, I love the papers and fabulous layout too.

Hi Lisa what a cute image...you have coloured it up beautifully and the polka dots buttons look fab. It's great to see these Welsh sentiments, I am sure your cards are going to snapped up so quickly. Good luck at the craft fair and enjoy your pancakes tonight, hugs xx
