Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge #53



Well it's Sunday again (where does the week go?) and its time for another fabulous challenge over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp. This week its my turn to provide a sketch (yayyy!! ) and this is what I came up with. This was my first ever attempt at creating a sketch and to be honest I didn't have a clue but with a bit of playing about here and there in Word I managed to cobble this one together, it's not bad for a first time effort is it? 

Onto my card and I used one of the fabulous Teddy Bo images and this one is Teddy Bea on a swing.  I love these images, they are so easy to colour.  This one I have coloured with Prisma's for a change, I love my Promarkers but sometimes I just like the softer finish that can be achieved with the Prisma pencils.  The paper is Prima Sparkling Spring, the punched border is Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Vintage Floral.  The flowers are the beautiful new Sweetheart Blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is Tulip Pink seam binding from The Ribbon Girl.  Sentiment I have had ages, don't know the make, sorry!  Buttons and pearl brad from stash.

Make sure you pop across to Sunday Sketch and Stamp and see the beautiful creations from the DT and there are some fab prizes to be had, so why not give my sketch a whirl?

Thats it for now, hope you all enjoy the rest of the long weekend, the weather has been glorious but its a tad breezy, hope tomorrow is a little calmer.

Hugs,
