Number it

I just love Tuesdays because it means there is a brand new challenge over at 
We have great fun making our projects to show you
Make sure you pop across and join us

This week we were challenged to use numbers om our projects I thought using dice would be a different way to represent them.

For my card this week I have used the lovely 
digi stamp Toby 
Toby Digi Stamp - Nikky Hall at Polkadoodles
He is also available on the CD Pretty Tuff (the skateboard is also from the CD).
*Pretty Tuff CD Rom

 I coloured Toby with Graph'It Markers.
  For the background I used Pan Pastel permanant red with a honeycomb stencil .
