Have you noticed the new badge in my sidebar??

Hello my blogging buddies,
Well, I can't believe it - Heather has asked me to be a DT member for The Rusty Pickle.  If you haven't been there yet then you really should give it a look see - there are some fab digi images with more on the way from the very talented Michelle.
Anyway, The Rusty Pickle have decided to do a challenge on a Tuesday and it is called Tart and Tangy Tuesdays.  Each week there will be a different theme, either a colour challenge or a sketch and you will be able to win some fab digi images.
So this Tuesday's Tart and Tangy challenge is Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue (all are Stampin' Up colours but please feel free to substitute the nearest colours you have in your stash)
So without further ado, here is my card for this week's challenge. 

I have based it on the sketch over at Tellen's Place;

and will also enter it into the challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenges which this week is Fur and/or Feathers.
The image is called Bunny and Skunk and is available at The Rusty Pickle.  I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and chalked around the image with pearlescent chalk (hopefully as near to Certainly Celery as possible). 

I then used the other colours for the bottom three bands on the sketch.
