May Challenge at Crafty Calendar

 Hello, I'm back with my second post today- it's our May Challenge over at Crafty Calendar, sponsored by the fabulous Sheepski Designs, the theme for this month is Anything Goes.

I made a card featuring the amazing Bartholomew- such a fabulous image ! He's coloured with Copics and a white gel pen on a stencilled backgound, The papers are Stamperia and I've used my Tim Holtz clock die (again!). I've added a few die cut cogs and a couple of stamped sentiments (also Tim Holtz). 

There's more to see over at the Challenge Blog, so please hop over to take a look, and of course we'd love to have you play along this month.

Thanks for visiting. enjoy your weekend.
