Stampin' Up!'s newest In Colour Island Indigo is Divine!

Hi Guys, I have had a really bad week mojo wise, nothing is appealing to me, at all! I think it is because I've not been feeling 100% and that I've been really busy... Tonight, I needed to get into the craft room and create, I was going stir crazy! Here is the fairly clean and simple card I came up with
The image is from The Greeting Farm, I've had this little guys head coloured in for a few days, just nowhere to put him.. I coloured him using my Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen. I stamped his body onto a piece of white and also two patterned papers from My Minds Eye, cut them out, and layered them on to the stamped image. The sentiment is from Just Believe, and has also been stamped using my Stampin' Write Marker, I selectively coloured the For You, and left the Just off this one. I layered the image panel onto Crumbcake, and mounted it on dimensionals to an Island Indigo card base. I threaded some retired Kiwi Kiss ribbon underneath the image and tied a bow. 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is a new one for me, the OWH Stars and Stamp Sketch challenge, which was surprisingly very similar to The Paper Players Sketch. I am also entering this into The Pink Elephant paper piecing challenge.
Thanks for dropping by, 
Don't forget, that the new catalogue is launched very soon (Thursday) so, pop back then and have a looksee!
