Oliver Fishing

Good Morning all! Happy Sunday!!!
Ohh Sunday!!!  That means time for the new challenge at
The Crafty Pad
The theme for this weeks challenge is a "Trio Of Colours"
Here's my little DT card

The image the DT were given to play with this week is 
Oliver is available at The Crafty Pad Designs Store,
I have used the uncoloured version & coloured him up with my promarkers!
I made my own Design Papers using tiles from the Woodsy Clip Art Collection
at Scrapbookingmad. I was really pleased with them!

Which reminds me, before I go any further I must tell you about 
our wonderful sponsor this week!

One lucky winner will receive a download of 
 their fantastic Scrapbooking Software.
It's not just for scrapbooking, you can so so much more with it!!!
If you don't win & would like to buy a copy of the software, 
there is a link in my side bar with a code which will save you $10 
just copy & paste it in the appropriate place when you get to the checkout!

I have used the uncoloured version of Oliver 
& coloured him up with my promarkers!
I added a sun using Pan Pastels. I also added a fish & float which 
I cut from my DP & layerd up to give some dimension.
I added some bakers twine & a couple of buttons from my stash!
The big red one is a vintage button from a box I was lucky enough to be given!

some distress ink treatment!
I hope you like my card!
