I Have Some Exciting News!!!

I am about to show to you my very first Sweet Sketch Wednesday card as one of their newest Design Team members!!!!!! I am thrilled beyond belief!!! I have always tried to play along with their weekly challenges, now I get to do it as a DT member!!!

Isn't this a fabulous sketch?!!!'s all about the layers!!!!!

Our sponsor this week is Shirley's 2 Girls.
Kristen is offering a $10 gift certificate for the winner of this challenge.
Be sure to take a moment and stop by the store it is just full of adorable images.

For my card I used the image Tresors (Treasures). I used Copic markers to give this lady with shopper's attitude some color. Summery colors of cardstock include Bermuda bay, White, Melon mambo, and the bright yellow DSP comes from SU, Morning Sunshine. Of course I included some of my favorite elements - sewing, ribbon, dimensionals, and, instead of pearls, dew drops.
Can't wait to see what you come up with for this magnificent sketch. Be sure to take a long look at the wonderful samples the talented Sweet Sketch Wednesday DT came up with, you will not be disappointed.
