...a hole in the bag!

Good morning, hope your week is going well so far. My card today is my DT creation for our new challenge at Creative Moments. The optional theme this time is 'Fairy Tales or wonderful stories. I was given this fabulous digi by Doctor Digi House of Stamps, one of our lovely sponsors for this challenge, it's the Mad Hatter !
The image is coloured with copics, fussy cut and mounted onto my background with foam pads. I had a great time making the background with Distress Oxide Inks! The marbles was a free image I found online, again coloured with copics and loads of glossy accents applied to them. The sentiment is stamped. 
Please hop on over to Creative Moments for full information of our lovely sponsors, there are 3 for this challenge, and to enjoy the fabulous inspiration from my teamies.
Thanks for visiting
