Ooh A Leggy Bird With Big ....

EYES! Well what do you think I meant....
This is my card for the Dare u 2 Digistamp challenge. This week it's pink and green, so I immediately though of my new digi download from Charmed Cards & Crafts. I thought this would be a great saying for a mans card, but pink and green?? Mmmmm
The ostrich has been coloured with Prisma's and UTE'd. I've printed the tiny birds on printable acetate, 'cos the background looked a little bare, and I have a fear of open spaces when it comes to cardmaking!
The backing papers are Basic Grey - good strong 'mens' papers lol.
I've found it best to heat emboss the downloads, as even though they appear dry, the ink still smudged a little when I tried to colour in.
I really think these downloads are the way to go when making guy cards, if only I could remember how to resize them for printing without asking my son every time I would be well away.
Back to work tomorrow, so I have to iron now :o( - sorry for the bad language.
Thanks for looking xx
