SKETCH SATURDAY and A GEM OF A CHALLENGE...

Morning all....today see's two new challenges,my first DT card is for SKETCH SATURDAY,

another fab sketch by Jo again this week :0).

We are sponsored this week by PAPER MAKEUP STAMPS,

and there's a great prize up for grab's for the lucky winner...can i enter,LOL.

The DT were lucky enough to get to work with a digi image or stamp of their choice,

i picked the lovely "Moody For Flowers" stamp to work with...a fabby image

suitable for so many occassions!

I've used Promarkers and Prisma's as my colouring medium...no surprise there then:0)

I've added a touch of glamour dust to the bow on the flowers.

The papers are My Minds Eye "Quite Contrary"...and i think they work perfectly with the image.

The sentiment is by Tabbykat from the "Sentiments & Greetings" set,

Border punch Fiskars "Threading Water".





Please pop over to the SKETCH SATURDAY challenge blog to see the fab prize

on offer from our sponsor PAPER MAKEUP STAMPS...

I would like to thank all who entered last weeks challenge we had a fantastic turn out,

and some amazing creations...hope to see you all again this week :0)

Now on to my second DT card and this one's for A GEM OF A CHALLENGE.... Again this week Janet's our host and she's set the theme of "PEARLS and SWIRLS" For my card i've used the dottie flower from the newly released stamp set"Funky Flowers", I love this stamp set :0). I've used Versafine "Deep Lagoon" to stamp the image onto cream cardstock, and them cut it out using an oval nestie...which i've then mounted onto the beaded oval nestie....and added pearls to each of the scallops. The swirly embossed background i've done using the Cuttlebug "Divine Swirls" embossing folder. Metal ribbon slider and ribbon from stash. We are sponsored this week by THE RIBBON GIRL....fabby prize up for grab's, well worth entering this week! Well that's about it for now....just to say have a lovely weekend, and hope you find alittle craft time,and maybe come and join in the fun on the challenges Take care
