Charlie Brown Inspired @ (Pin)spirational Challenges!

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by at the blog today :)

Today we have a cartoon inspired picture at (Pin)spirational Challenges in the form of the lovely Charlie Brown. Now I really love Snoopy and the Peanuts crew and you know what Snoopy is like - causing slight mischief on his own, or chilling out with Woodstock, you gotta feel for Charlie having such a unique pet! :)
One of Charlie Brown's favourite sports (well it's the only one I've seen him play) is Baseball and we've been inspired at the challenge blog today to create something. So this week's challenge is inspired by this picture:

So following this picture, I've created this card:

I must admit I found it quite difficult to come up with ideas for a card, as I literally had a creative block. I thought this would make a sweet children's card or kids card because of the baseball or sports theme! I used Promarkers to colour in this Kitty Bee Image (who are our sponsors this week!) - colours are: Poppy and Black for the hat, Cocoa and Cinnamon for the bear, Sunflower for the shirt and Caramel for the bat. I'm still working on the colouring, so please excuse the 'patchy colouring' - my apologies! =S Though looking at it now, doesn't seem so bad, as it looks quite 'texture-y'. I used some star themed paper and banners for the background and red card stock for the card base.

Our sponsor this week is:
 So please check out their website for cute digital stamps and images!
