Stamp with fun #132–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you all had a fab weekend, but boy don’t they go by too fast.  I can’t believe it’s time for work already groan!!  However on the positive side it also means it’s time for a brand new challenge over at stamp with fun challenge.  This week we have a wonderful sketch by Tina to work with.  I had been asked by a friend at work to make a card for her daughter’s 21st birthday so I decided to combine the two!  Here is my card:

and here is the sketch:

SWF #132 sketch

I have used a gorgeous image by Sugar Nellie stamps from the simply sassy range called ‘retail therapy’ and I coloured her with promarkers and flex markers.  The colour scheme was chosen by my friend as her daughter loves these colours.  I have to admit I did struggle to find papers that complimented each other and most of these have been in my stash for years.  It does look much better IRL and my friend was very happy with it!  I recently treated myself to some new magnolia doohickeys dies – the flowers and swirl – and I love them already so expect to see them on all my cards for the next few weeks lol!.  The card is 8 x 8 in size and as it was such a layered sketch I think I worked really well on a larger size card.  

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
