Dare U 2 Digi Stamp #5 My very 1st Sketch!

Hi folks!
Welcome to week #5 on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp!  This weeks 'Dare' is a sketch by 'moi'.  I love making cards using a sketch as my starting point but boy, they are not easy to draw.  I take my hat off to those who come up with fab sketches every week.  If you want some inspiration look no further then our talented DT.  I hope you are able to join in as I would love to come and see what you create with my sketch.
I re-sized, cropped and mirrored Chris's digi stamp of Vicky for my card.  She is coloured using Copics and distress inks. I love  how you can change your digi image  to fit your project rather than have to change your project to fit your stamp.  The pretty papers are by Imaginessence.  I have used my Nestabilities to cut the frame and the sentiment is a Bosskut die.  I finished off with some gems and ribbon. Oh, I nearly forgot to say, I cut out a tiny tiara from the patterned paper for Vicky to wear.
I was flabbergasted to see the number of comments I received for my previous card. It was a record for me :o) Thank you all so, so much.  I really appreciate each and every one of them.
Hope you have got fun things planned for Bank Holiday weekend.  I'm afraid life goes on at The Dry residence as both Adrian and I are working over the weekend.
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx
