Knight in kitchen armor

     Welcome to another Thursday inspiration post for Mo's Digital Pencil!  Our lovely Anja has given us a theme of "K is for...." and I've used Mo's "Kitchen Knight".
     I dug these papers out of an old 12 x 12 DCWV paper pad.  I liked the fun bright colors.  The trim reminded me of chain mail so I added some.  My coloring mojo wasn't quite up to speed on this one.  The last few days I haven't felt that great and it really puts a damper on my creativity.
     Here'a closer look at my little knight and his fighting dragon.

     We'd love to have you join in the challenge.  Remember it now runs for two weeks so you have plenty of time to make a card.  Just use a Mo image and join in.  Also, if you haven't checked out the new Bronte and Bella's Clubhouse on Facebook you really need to see what's going on there.  Lots of sharing and some awesome tutorials.
     Have a blessed Thursday!
