Sketch Time at Delightful

Good morning to you I am a bit late this morning! Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


Now I just love following a sketch it makes things sooooo easy!  If you have never tried it before why don't you have a go, I think you will love it.  Here is my card:

I have used:

Flying Roxter available here

Spring Fling Digital Papers available here

Spring Sentiments Set available here

Roxter has been coloured with my Copics and then cut and matted using my Spellbinders Nesties.  I have embossed the background.  The border is made using a Dienamics Double Scallop Die and I have cut out the sentiment with a Lil' Inkers Pennant Die.  I have added Stickles to the image, not sure if you can see it! The ribbon is from my stash.  Here is a picture of the sketch for you:

As you can see I have followed it faithfully.  You don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter the challenge but if you do then you can enter your project twice!  Our sponsor this week is:

and the lucky winner will receive a $20 store gift card!  Please go over to Delightful Challenges to see what the rest of the Design Team have created and to welcome our four new Team Members!!

Thanks for looking today! I am off to see Hairspray in Manchester tonight!  See you tomorrow, take care xx

So sorry I missed out your last beautiful creations Susan, but my laptop sort of died on me and then after a couple of days I was able to resuscitate it again. Anyhoo, I love seeing what you've created in the past few days, what a fine card maker you are, always love to come round to see what you've made! And your geisha card is GORGEOUS!! Hugs, Ira x

Patricia said...

How cute is that???
I love the fresh Spring colours you have used. Great take on the sketch.

From some of the comments on my Blog it looks like Kanban is not open to the General Public now. That`s a pity it was on my list for when we go down to Yorkshire in March.

Terrific little card Susan ... I kept looking at it thinking the border was a ruffled effect but then I clicked to make it larger & it's striped paper. What a wonderful look. LOVE the sweet little image.
