Lovely Jubbly!

Hi folks!
Happy 4th July to all my American buddies! Gill is hosting over on Sketch Saturday this week and has come up with a cracking Sketch with an added twist celebrating American Independence Day. Sponsoring this week are All That Scraps. Gitti is our new Guest Designer, see her fabulous creation and that of all my fellow DT on the blog.
I thought some Gingham (YeeHaw!) was in order for this challenge. The one I've used is from a Joanna Sheen pack. I have embossed a piece of red card using my Sizzix texture plate. The decorative corners are cut from Funky Foam using a Cuttebug die. The ribbon arrived yesterday from The Paper Mill and I must say was great value for money. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the hearts and the sentiment is by K&Co (the first one I've used from my HUGE embellishment's gonna last me a lifetime I think!) The cute little cook is by Hanglar and Stanglar. I coloured her in using Copic markers and highlighted the icing on the cupcake with some glitter.
Have a nice day!

Hi Sandra,
This image is adorable and you've coloured it to perfection. I love those foam corners.
I wonder how many of us have all these unused kits, it's scary!
Have a wonderful weekend.
