SNSDC80 ~ New release - Shaped card challenge

Hello Friends & Followers!  Yesterday Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps released three new digis in conjunction with their 5th birthday celebration:
Eskimo Kisses (colored image - the outlined image was previously released and is available in the store as well for those of you who love to color):
This week's Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge is to make a shaped card.  I decided to use cute little Kiwi Koala's Cuppa image as the shape for my card:

I printed him out somewhat supersized, colored him in using Spectrum Noir markers for the grey portions (they are new, wanted to try them out - let me know what you think!) and Copic markers for the colored portions, cut him out and traced him onto a piece of Going Grey cardstock.  I cut along my outline and scored at the top, folded it over to attach it to the image at the top and VOILA - instead Kiwi shaped card!  I also punched out 'Winter Blessings' from the Eskimo Kisses Sentiments set and attached it at the bottom, though I feel bad blocking part of his cute paw pads.
     Be sure to see the SNSDC Blog for more ideas from my Digi Challenge teammates.  Won't you play along with us?  And in celebration of SNSS' 5th birthday the prize for this week's challenge is BIG - $20 of SNSS digi images!!  Can you believe it?!!  You don't even need to use a SNSS digi, any digi will do, BUT this week if you use a SNSS digi you get TWO entries into the drawing!    
     Remember, there are lots of special things are planned all month long!  Be sure to visit the Sweet 'n Sassy store for a list of all scheduled events and weekly sales.  There are daily giveaways on the SNSS Facebook page and in the SCS Member Company Forum as well, so stop by often so you don't miss a thing!  Happy 5th birthday SNSS!

Love it!! What a cool idea and very cute Kiwi card! Thanks for reminding me of one of the benefits of Digistamps, making it any size I want!! I just got some Spectrum Noir markers myself, but haven't cracked them open yet. Getting ready for a roadtrip so I may not have a chance to for a long while yet! :(
