My FIRST challenge card!

I just completed my first challenge card for Pixie Dust Studios. I love their digi stamps, so...I decided to give it a try. The theme was "Old Photos" use color combo of black & white. I had just purchased this digi stamp, Robo Steampuff, from them and thought it would be perfect in the black/white palette. I used a scrap of argyle paper I had, embossed a grey piece with a Cuttlebug folder & inked it, then layered and added a bow. for the frame on the image I used my Creative Memories oval cutter to cut the frame and the bottom mat. I added the brads to carry out the robo theme. I like it...this digi is just too cute! However, I will add some red Stickles to the heart when I decide to use the card....me & my glitter:) Things I learned doing this challenge: I love Gamsol. I am not very steady at coloring...need to work on it a little.
