You're Sweet!

Scanner vs. Photo: Again, which is better to you? I'm trying a different background fabric for the photos.
Now for some details of this card. I took some of my cream colored cardstock and took some lime green tissue paper. I crumpled it up and used Elmer's glue to glue it down. I took a second strip of green tissue paper and did the same thing. I printed out my Sweet N Sassy skunk image and colored it with my Bic, Sharpie, Prismacolor and the sky & clouds with Copic markers. I am pretty proud of the shading I did on the skunk and the tree trunk. I also tried a new technique using the colorless blender to make the clouds. I've been reading the ilikemarkers blog and I used this image to try and put to use some of the teachings. After cutting the image out, I adhered it to a piece of Creative Memories paper to mat it. I punched a couple of slits above the image and put the ribbon thru. Then I got some alphabet stamps and stamped the words "You're Sweet" below the image. I had seen someone else's card with a skunk and similar wording (in fact I got it in a swap months ago).

This card is going to be submitted to several challenges.
Use Ribbons at Creative Card Crew Challenge
Sweet Birthdays at Digital Tuesday Challenge
Birthday Card at Whimsy Stamps
