"As I Lay Me Down to Sleep"

Made this little card yesterday to coincide with the Colour
Create Challenge this week, which is to use the colours
Brown, Green and Orange, with the added option of making
a card for a man!! Well, we all know how hard it is to find
flowery, chintzy material which we all love to suit a man's card!
Not going to happen! So we either buy one with a joke on it or
we make one which we don't like!! Not good! So thinking out
of the box, thought I would make one for a little man ahhhh!
This little image is a free digi download from a fab blog who's
owner is Dustin Pike he has drawn some fabulous images which
he sells on Etsy, but every Wednesday he offers a freebie!!!
How fab is that!! I have coloured the image with water colour
pencils and palette, the papers are from BG Lime Rickey. The
sentiment stamp has it's first outing although I have had it
for about five years!!! found it after my craft room clear out!!
It is from Rubber Stampede. Lace and ribbons from stash.
