Waste Not Wednesdays week 18

It's week 18 of my little Waste Not Wednesdays challenge, here to encourage you to use all your neglected and forgotten stash :o)  Last week was prize week, so before I get onto my card I need to announce the winner of the DigiStamp Boutique voucher... and that lucky person is...

Number 8 - Sarah

Congrats hun!  Could you email me please, so I can sort out your prize :o)

And here's my card for this week...




I've used an image from The Clipart Fairy that I've had hanging around waiting to be coloured for ages... I think I spotted these on Kerry's blog and there were quite a few that I couldn't resist - typically for me, the rest of them are still waiting to be used, but I'll get there eventually!  I've coloured this little cutie with promarkers and flexmarkers, added lots of glamour dust and my current fave - the Viva pearl pen, for the little dots around the image.  The papers are from an older MME pack, and I've used lots of bits of orange and red card from my scraps.  The sentiment is from a set I've had for probably a couple of years, and I think I've only used one of the stamps before.  Flower cut with a DooHickey die, with a card candy centre.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Sorry for the rushed post - hubby's shouting for me to hurry up lol... Ooh, have you picked up your freebie images from DigiStamp Boutique yet though?  Have a look at my post from yesterday if you haven't got yours yet!  Have a lovely evening :o)
