SKETCH SATURDAY and A GEM OF A CHALLENGE...

Hi everyone...today i have two DT cards to share with you...firstly SKETCH SATURDAY which this week Simonne's our host and what a fabby sketch she's come up with,thanks sweetie! We are also sponsored this week by WHIMSY STAMPS.....a brilliant company who i'm really honoured to be on the digital DT for.....Denise as been very generous this week with the prize on offer for the lucky winner,go check out what's up for grabs :0) The image i've used is a newly released MELJEN DESIGNS digi stamp "Victorian Shoe Daisies",coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's,i've added midget gems to the center of the flowers and where the button trim is on the shoe. The papers are Bearlymine Designs ......"Paper Lace"....i was lucky to win the competition Donna was running to name this new collection last week so got this gorgeous download as my prize :0). The metal corner and ribbon slider i've toned down alittle using a black Promarker...they were alittle too bright. Ribbon and tiny pearls from stash. Please go check out what's on offer over at WHIMSY STAMPS...i'm sure something will pop into your basket!
Just a close up of this gorgeous image.....


Now onto my second card which is my DT card for A GEM OF A CHALLENGE....this week our host is Janet,she's come up with a great sketch for us all to work with...i so enjoyed working with this one..thanks hun.

This cute little bear is one of Janets new digi images"Cupcake Teddy" and i've coloured her using Promarkers and Prisma's...i've added glossy accents and a pearl to the cupckae.

The paper and sentiment ticket are both PINK GEM DESIGNS....the "Gingham" paper download and the "Special Day calendar stamp".

I've used a Marianne Designs frame die,ribbon and self adhesive pearls from stash and the wooden hearts are Hobby Craft.

I'm entering this card into the following challenge:-
