Sketch Saturday - my first week on the Design Team!

Saturday 16 June 2012

Morning Campers!
I hope you are enjoying your Saturday morning so far, maybe a lie-in or something wonderful like that? Lie-ins are a thing of my past these days, my Little Miss is always awake about 6.30am, sigh, oh well at least I now regulalry get crafting done before breakfast!

Anyway, I am very excited to say that today is my first day on the Sketch Saturday Design Team! I was very flattered to be chosen as they are such a talented bunch over there but here I am!

This week's challenge is sponsored by Stamp Fairy who have some very cute images on their site, so pop on over and have a look. Here is this week's sketch which is fabulous as usual:

and here is my Design Team entry. I rotated the sketch 90o counter-clockwise and used 'Roadster Nikki' by Ladybug Crafts Ink which I coloured using my Copics.

This card was made for a friend who is moving to South Africa very shortly - we will miss her! I didn't have a 'sorry you are leaving' sentiment so I printed 'Bon Voyage' on my PC.  I wanted to go bright and found that fab green and pink spotty paper in my stash which I thought would be perfect and I matched everything else to that.

I finished off with a nice big bow in the top corner and added a button and a charm, oh and some glitter - what card is complete without glitter?!

I really hope you like this one - make sure you join in with the challenge this week - there's a prize on offer!
