Love You!

Hi folks!
It's week 65 over on Sketch Saturday and another fabby sketch by the talented Jo. This week we are sponsored by 'Digital Delights by Louby Loo', the winner can choose $10.00 worth of digital designs. My fellow DT have come up with yet more beautiful cards to inspire you all.
For my card I dug out an old Cosmo Cricket QVC set. I just love the rich warm colours I can play with when I dive into this box. I used my square and Square Scallop Nestabilities, Fiskars deckle edged scissors, Woodware flower punches and Martha Stewart leaf punch. The chipboard sentiment got a bit lost on the card so I looped some sheer polka dot ribbon behind it. Love how it turned out. The character is Popcorn the Bear with his cute little duck friend Souffle. I have coloured them in with my Koi watercolours and added some glossy accents to his eyes and nose. The flower centres are perfect pearls. I used my new Fiskars threading water punch that I bought right at the beginning of my holiday when I went along to a warm and welcoming crop near Ferndown. Not too far from where the Caravan was. I had a fantastic time and met some wonderful ladies.... more about that later!
Ciao for now

Love what you have done with the ribbon. I wish my brain would retain all the lovely ideas I get from blogs, but within seconds of clicking onto another blog I have forgotten the techniques used on the previous one.
