Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge --It must be Thursday :)

Yep, Thursday is Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge day.  This is Dawn B's last challenge this month and it was an awesome sketch challenge.  I really like sketch challenges because I don't have to create my own layout, fewer brain cells strained, added bonus!!   Here is my card for this week's challenge:

I really love this darling far sighted porcupine called You'r Kinda Cute, I can relate to this guy, but not quite this badly LOL.  He was colored with copic markers and I know that most pin cushions are red like the tomato that they are supposed to resemble, however,  I wanted the color to blend more with the browns that I had picked out for my dp.  I guess I created my own hybrid tomato, I guess I am more talented than I realized ha ha.
The porcupine quills and the pins are all highlighted with clear stardust gel pen but the photo doesn't catch this at all.
The sketch called for two squares behind the main image panel.  I didn't just want plain edges so I used my Marvy corner punch and tucked them in leaving a border of brown around each corner punch.
I added the 3 little hearts which are left after punching with the MS heart border punch.  I save them just in case I may have a need for a little red heart.
Well, thanks for stopping by and be sure to check to see who the March Guest Designer will be.  This is the final week for the month long search for the March Guest Designer.  I think this is going to be an ongoing search with a new Guest Designer being chosen each month.  You have to participate in each challenge and follow the challenge rules to be eligible.  You should try it.

I forgot to mention that I am the Challenge Hostess next month so be sure to join us.

Thanks for stopping by

Happy Coloring

What a precious card! I can totally see how a farsighted fellow could fall in love with a pincushion the same color as he is!! Terrific idea!
