Sketch Saturday - Sketch # 54

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start. A card today for Sketch Saturday and a special one for me as it's my friend Sandra's fortnight to pick a guest designer for the team and she asked me :) . Of course I said yes immediately and was so pleased that she asked me, thanks buddy and I hope I make the grade as I know there's a wealth of talent on the Sketch Saturday team. There's a wonderful sketch to follow this week from Mandy and I really enjoyed it.

I've used one of my new Kadoodle stamp designs which is being launched today at the Craft Barn Extravaganza. The image is watercoloured with distress ink and then I've rounded off the corners in line with the sketch and added some stickles for a bit of sparkle. The pretty paper is by Delish Designs and I've distressed all round the edges, done some piercing and faux stitching and made a little tage attached with a eyelet. Added some buttons, sentiment and some raffia to finish. TFL. Chris x

Chris ~ Wow, this is just adorable, i love that cute image ... was hoping he was one of yours ... had my purse out ready to skip off and buy him ... can you see the disappointment on my face lol? He would've been perfect for my grandson's card :( Anyhow, you have coloured him beautifully. Gorgeous take on the sketch. Jillix
