Fairy Tale Friday!

It's fairy tale friday again, my chance to tell of all the goings on at Teddy Bo Towers, over on the Teddy Bo challenge blog, and of course there has to be a card to go with it.

I love this image and just had to use it, especially when I found the perfect verse to go with it.

Sir Bo was coloured in Photoshop, papers and scroll are from a digital scrapbook kit called Good Knight by Heather Roselli, the gold embellishment in the top corner is cut from gold mirror card using a Nellie Snellen die, and I used some of the left over bits to decorate the scroll. The poem reads...

In days of old, when knights were bold,
and chivalrous and trusty,
they sweated in,
their suits of tin
and all their bits went rusty!

I followed this sketch from the Fetch-a-Sketch challenge blog, but rotated it 90 degrees clockwise.

Don't forget you still have until Sunday 24th July midnight GMT to enter our 'Teddy Bea only' challenge over on the Teddy Bo challenge blog.

***If you are looking for my Teepee card template you will find it here ***
