Troll Mine

Well it's Monday, and that means that play time is over for most of us as we prepare to begin another work week.  Hopefully you had a good weekend.  I spent mine hanging out with my baby sister on Saturday.  Then Sunday we spent time with our daughter and granddaughter.  In between all that I did get a bit of crafting done.
Today I want to share with you one of the cards I made yesterday.  I had a lot of fun playing around with this one and I'm pleased with the turn out.  For this card I used the recently released You're My Treasure - Trolls file by Marjorie Ann Designs.  This wonderful file has four different trolls and all just as cute as can be.
The mine background is a digi stamp called Mine Digital Stamp, and it's from Craftin' Desert Divas.  Now I'm not great at coloring and even though I have all these Spectrum Noir stamps I decided to color this stamp a bit different.  For this go round I opened the stamp in my paint program and added the colors.  I then opened it in another photo editor to change it up a bit (unfortunately I do not have Photoshop) until I was satisfied.  To get the background the size that I wanted for my card, I inserted into Word and changed up the size then printed on a piece of white cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Stamp set titled Sweet Travels.
To finish off my card I used a couple of slate colored skittles from DoubleClick Connections in the top corner.
And since I haven't done a challenge in a while I thought it would be fun to enter this one into the Fun Day Friday Challenge at Jo's Scrap Shack.
