Challenge #17 Anything I mean anything goes
Challenge #40 sketch
Challenge #63  sketch

For this project I chose a Whiff of Joy stamp from their beach set #3 again another image drawn by Elizabeth Bell.  I've been looking forward to receiving this stamp plate so that I could use the images - maybe a few beach theme cards coming up.

Apologies for not waiting for glue to dry when sticking the ribbon bow to card - but in a hurry to post.

The sketch used for this challenge is

The image was coloured with copics and the backing papers were all from the Crafter's Companion range of products (SWALK CD Rom).  I cut the main image with a jaunty angle to the bottom edge to create a different look then embellished with fabric and pearl ribbons and a brad.

I like the limited colours of blue and brown which always work well together with a pop of pink.

Thanks for looking, Sharon

What a lovely card.. I think that is so cool. I think this is the first time that I have seen an entry using two sketches. What are the odds that they would be so similar :)You have created a wonderful card for your entry this week. Thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenge this week.
