Sweet Stampin with Passion for Promarkers

It's Saturday and that means another challenge over at
where my teamies have been very creative this week picking their favourite images.  I picked mine from Heather Ellis' Pure Innocence range of cuties.  Frankly, these images are soooo sweet that it is almost impossible to choose a favourite but I picked this little lady on account of her versatility.  She goes really well with "A little Birdie Told Me" sentiment or "You're so tweet" and she would make a lovely Spring or Summer card.   Our challenge this week is for you to choose your favourite image from your own stash.  It is not necessary to use a Heather Ellis image but do check out her store.  The lucky winner of this week's challenge will win 4 digital images so get creating!
I decided that my little bird would be a robin and I made a card which is also suitable for this week's Passion for Promarker's theme of "Music".
I found some sheet music for "Rockin Robin", scanned and shrunk it then selected my digi-image and merged her on top of the music. Because the little girl is covering up most of the background, I added a word processed page of lyrics too. My dotty paper is Stampin Up and the background is something I picked up at the Paper Mill recently which I ran through a musical Cuttlebug folder. The swirly corners are a Sizzlits Architectural Element die and my sentiment is word processed and layered using SU and Nesties punches. My image is, of course, coloured with Promarkers and I have added some ribbon and a little gem to the sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by. Don't forget to visit the Sweet Stampin challenge blog this week and check out the crew's work.
