Orson With Cake, new digi stamp

I am entering this card for the first challenge at MAGIC IN THE AIR! by Nina. She is offering a free digi stamp each week and has a DT that will post their samples. I decided to use her 'tease' of what the first digi would be by shrinking the stamp and using a 7/8" punch to highlight different areas of Orson with Cake. Then I used the MS 1" circle punch to accent the different poses. I used Prisma color pencils and OMS to color. Of course, it couldn't be a celebration without some stickles!

The other 3 challenge I will post on are:
1. Midnight Madness Challenge: MMSC 13, sketch challenge.
2. SC Limited Supply Challenge: LSC232, I'm Hungry - to feature food.
3. Pile It On, Challenge #9, Use at least 3 flowers.

The SplitCoast challenge was interesting, you can only use CS that has a food name. I used what I had on hand, so it is: So Saffron, Old Olive, and Pale Plum. I wonder if SU! did it on purpose, give food names to CS that would coordinate so well! It's been a fun 4 challenges, something I haven't done for awhile. It sure helps with decision making when you are guided in what to do!

Have a great day - either you will or you won't, the choice is yours!
