Divas by Design - Challenge 11: A sketch

Good morning blogland

Can you believe it another fortnight has passed and it's time for a new challenge over at Divas by Design!

This time it's a sketch, now have I mentioned before that I love sketches?! No, well I will let you into a little secret - I LOVE sketches!  A long time ago I didn't love sketches - but then I was looking at my cards one time and realised that, on the whole, I was doing the same layout pretty much every time.  Now I'm not the most artistic of people and thought, what can I do to make my cards look different occasionally and I re-discovered sketches - I saw the error of my ways and was hooked.

Our sponsor this time is StitchyBear Digital Stamps and, my word, they have a huge array of digi stamps.  Something for everyone and they have very kindly provided some images for the Design Team to work with.
So this time the challenge is just up my street - altho you might have difficulty actually spotting the sketch in my card!  So here is the sketch:

And here is the card, front view:

Detail shot on the image:

Details of card:

StitchyBear Digi Stamp - Who me, coloured with my Prisma Pencils and a bit of Glamour Dust on her wings (well fairies have to be glittery, don't they?)
The papers are all Prima - Sparkling Spring collection paper  pad.
The image has been die-cut with nesties.
The flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
The bit of fluff is off a ball of wool which I got from a local shop - £1.50 for a huge ball!!
Card blank and sentiment from Craftwork Cards

So please pop over to the challenge blog, it's a lovely place and the other DT members are such brilliant creative girlies - you will be amazed at what they produce.

Cheerio for now
