Are you fit yet?

So how are the 'New Year, New You' fitness resolutions going???

My sister asked me to do a card for her friend and wanted it to be based around running in the woods!! Well that is pretty specific and I really had to get my thinking cap on. This is what I came up with:

I used some designer paper for the woods and the digi image from the stamping boutique for the runner.

The colour challenge at Colour Q inspired me to do this card-I had been dragging my feet on this as I was struggling with my sister's request! But I liked the colour combo at colour q and it all just seemed to stem from there. I decided to go with a sketch challenge and chose the one at sketch Saturday.  And just to make it a little bit more of a challenge I decided to try to incorporate a twine, button and New Year's resolution theme so I could enter the challenge at The Ribbon Reel.

I got there in the end and to be honest it was these 3 challenges combined together that gave me the inspiration to start and complete this commission!!

Used in the card:
digi image-stamping boutique
Inks-memento tuxedo back and whispers savoy green
Paper-papermill, stampin up
Twine, button from stash
sentiment clear rubber stamp-wild rose studio
