Little Green Men

As I am heading home to Bonnie Scotland in a couple of weeks for the summer and knowing that I won't have a lot of time and not having any crafty stuff at home, I thought I would try and get ahead of myself on the card front. My target before I leave is to have all the cards that I need until the end of September done. Today's card finishes off August for me.

Thought a I would a tongue in cheek card for a good friend. My image comes from Prairie Fairy and is called Martian Men and which I coloured in with copic pens and distressed the edges with Adirondack Cabin Fever. The two backing mats are cut from cardstock from BoBunny. The green mat is U Bug Me! Dot and the organe is Orange Citrus Dot. The blue buttons are from my stash.

I am entering it two challenges. The first challenge over at Card Patterns gives me the sketch and the second challenge is Prairie Fairy's Anything Goes Challenge. There is a bit of a coincidence here as Prarie Fairy are sponsoring this week's Card Patterns Challenge.

Thanks for popping by.
