Knight in shining armour

When I saw that Pollycraft had 25% off their digi stamps plus a freebie I thought it was time to buy some more of these fab digis and here is Cuthbert dressed as a brave knight. The challenge this week at Pollycraft is fit for a princess. I decided rather than do a girly card that I would use Cuthbert here as I'm sure any princess would love him and the purple is such a rich royal colour. It is such a great image for either male or female cards which is the challenge this week at Polka Doodles. I used MS zigzag punch, X cut corner rounder punch and Dovecraft star punch for the challenge of punches at Crafty Cardmakers. There's a fun challenge of going to the movies at Totally Papercrafts and I thought of First Knight. Can you see the resemblance to Richard Gere, lol?
