Could this be Maid Marian???

I follow the Sassy Studio Designs Facebook group and love their stamps, but haven't used any of them for ages, for no particular reason, so I thought I would pull one out today and to make things even better I also found out that they have a challenge blog too! You all know how much I love my challenges!

So this card is for Dare To Be Sassy Thursday's Challenge #250 to use the sketch below, Crafty Sentiments Challenge Anything Goes, Scrapper's Delight Challenge #33 Anything Goes or Monochrome (I went for the monochrome), Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #28 Storytime and The Outlawz Saturday Paper A La Mode Challenge, which was also to use monochrome colours.

I went for a different take on Cupcake Inspirations challenge and rather than use an image of a book, I went with a book character. I thought this digi looked a bit like Maid Marian from the Tales of Robin Hood. Hope you can see it too!

Here's the sketch...


And here's my take on it, all in shades of green. I really like how this one came out! Green is not a colour I would normally go for when doing monochromatic combos, but it turned out really nice!
