Here's to You!

A super cool sketch is waiting for you at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. You need to play along, because you could be the winner of a $10 gift certificate from this week's sponsor, Shirley's 2 Girls. Talk about some fun images!!

I had the privilege of using their Un Grande Artiste image, and here's what I came up with:

I used Copic markers to color her in, giving her some funky colors of clothes! I love the pink slippers!!!!! I found some paper I've had for a looooong time, and decided to use it. Colors include Pacific point, Kiwi kiss, Rich razzleberry, and Tangerine tango. The bottom right hand corner needed and embellishment, so a flower made out of buttons seemed to hit the mark!! I added a few leaf punches too and well as sewing (of course!) and ribbon. Now hop on over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog to check out the inspirational pieces from the rest of the Design Team, you will be happy you did.

Very cute card! But what really caught my eye is the flower with the buttons. Aren't you clever. Its another one of those ideas that make me slap my forehead and say to myself "why didn't I think of that!"
