Friday Sketchers - Sketch 37

Well, what a week ! Full of ups and downs but here we are again, Friday ! Where on earth does the time fly to ?

I have been able to join in with another challenge - I'm beginning to enjoy this ! This time it is with Friday Sketchers and Carole has designed the sketch this week. Also this week, Simonsaysstamp are sponsoring this week's challenge and the prize is a $50 voucher to spend at Simonsaysstamp's store ! Just how wonderful is that ? They sell everything crafty on the Planet so what are you waiting for ?!!

This is the card I made :

The patterned papers are Cosmo Cricket "Honey Pie" which is a yummy 8x8 pad.

The image is by Sarah Kay "My Sweet Lily" which was very kindly given to me by Martine. I have coloured this cutie with ProMarkers. The colours were : cocoa, burnt sienna and pastel beige (hair), ivory and blush (skin), pastel pink (dress and bow), cinnamon and henna (teddy), lemon (teddy's dress and bow), satin (lacy edges), pastel blue, pastel green, pastel pink and lavender (ball), cool grey 1 (edges).

The ribbon, buttons and pearls are from my stash.

Flowers are American Crafts Greenhouse paper flowers.

I also decorated the inside :

I used the leftover papers from the front of the card, (sshhhh another Martha Stewart punch - floral scallop which I bought from Dies to Die For !), and label nesties !

I hope you are ready for the big weekend ahead ? First of all on Saturday (tomorrow) we have the next challenge on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog - you will like this one !

On Sunday we have the launch of the brand new look Kaboodle Doodle Challenge Blog where not only will there be a new challenge, a brand new kit just out but also TWO chances to win blog candy !

Last, but not least, we have on Sunday morning the ribbon cutting of the brand new challenge blog Colour Create ! Our first challenge will be set on Sunday and there will also be a chance to win candy too !

I look forward to seeing you on all three !

Take care and have a great weekend.
