The sketch challenge went up over at Pricillastyles, and this is what it is for this week MMSC14. Let me tell you they are a great bunch of ladies ~ and if you tried the sketch you'd get totally addicted! You've got to become a follower on that site, there's lot's up for grabs if you do.

But all the goodies aside ~ I need the inspiration. I craft each and every day. Really. I am very lucky to have the hubby that I have that allows me to do this. And after a while I feel a little stale. I mean, my cards. I need the inspiration, and doing sketch challenges helps a lot! I used to look forward to each Wednesday at SCS - but now that I've found the Midnight Madness challenges, and the Mojo Monday (I'm still working on that one) it helps. So enough of the babble - on to my card.

The base card is Pretty in Pink that I layered with YoYo Yellow and Sweet Always DP. I stamped the image and colored her in with my pencils and gamsol. I stamped her and the flower again and colored in her face, flower and boots and cut them out and pop dotted them for a 3d look. I made the photo corners for the top right and left of the card with some scrap. The sentiment is from The Angel Company Purchase with Purchase stamps. I stamped it in with Pixie Pink ink, cut it out with my oval punch and sponged a little ink around the panel. I layered it on to a piece of YoYo Yellow that I cut out with my Marvy scallop oval punch and pop dotted it to the card.
Under the sentiment panel I took a scrap piece of Pink Pirouette and layered it with a bit of the Sweet Always paper that I used my Martha punch on and added some ribbon before I adhered it to the card. A couple of gems here and there and I was complete.
I hope that you jump on over to Priscillastyles for some inspiration! And yes, the tutorial is coming later today.
