Sketch Saturday #39 sponsored by Emma Lockley

Hi folks!!
Emma Lockley is sponsoring the Sketch Saturday challenge this week. Another chance to win a fabulous prize. Hop over to the blog for more details. Jo has come up trumps again with a fabby sketch for everyone to use. Thanks Jo, you are a st*r.

For my card I couldn't wait to ink up this little beauty from Whiff of Joy, she is part of the new spring set. Hasn't she got just the most adorable expression on her cute face. I have coloured her with my Koi watercolours, highlighted with my white signo pen and added a touch of glossy accents to her shoe. The shapes have been cut using my Nestabilities. The papers are from my Cosmo Cricket bundle that came from QVC... still have so much of this to use up, may take a lifetime! The ribbons are American crafts. The fancy corners are a Cuttlebug die. The ladybirds and 'love' are all buttons and I have removed the shanks. The panel directly behind the image I have stamped with an egg stamp that I have had for a long time. I think the company is Serendipity. I used the masking technique to make it look a bit like a border.
Don't forget to check out the wonderful cards my fellow DT have created, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you too for such a perfect day, I had a great time, we really are a lethal combo spending wise tee hee but you have to grab the bargains when they're there! Glad you liked my over sized cupcake and got the joke LOL, that cake would have been perfect for my tummy at about 5.30ish!!!
