Challenge #15 at A Die for a Sketch

It is Monday!! I hope you are having a great start to your week! 
 Our county fair is this week and I have one son competing with rabbits and a llama.  I will also enjoy the corndogs and cotton candy, mmmm.

♡  ♡  ♡  ♡  ♡  ♡
We have a new challenge this month 
Here is the sketch for our challenge
One Rule: use our sketch and a minimum of 1 die

♡  ♡  ♡  ♡  ♡  ♡

Here is the card I made using our sponsor 

Walter is adorable! 
 I immediately knew he would go with Tim Hotz's Idea-ology papers,  Paper Stash.  I layered several of the papers from the 8x8 paper pad. 

Walter is colored in copics and then I rubbed distressed ink onto the background for the aged look

There are gears from Tim Holtz and metal buttons from Prima Junkyard Trinkets scattered around

Across the top I put green twine and knotted it

The inside of the card, no it is not red, but rust, all in the camera's mood!

I hope you liked my card, it was fun to make!  Please go to A Die for a Sketch Challenge blog and see what my teammates created.  I hope we inspired you to join our challenge this month as it is great seeing you there!

Have a great day,
