Stamp with fun #138–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you had a great weekend, although it seemed to sneak passed me without barely registering and here we are again ready to start the working week (groan!!).  As it’s Monday morning it’s time for a brand new challenge over at stamp with fun challenge and this week we have a wonderful sketch by Andrea-Emmi41 to use.  I really enjoyed using the sketch this week and I think it will be put in my ‘sketches’ book for use again in the future.  Here is my card:

I made this card for my parents to give to my niece and as it’s her 18th birthday I made an 8x8 card.  The image is some odd girl stamps and is called ‘dancin’ Kaylee’ and I coloured her with a mix of flex markers and promarkers.  The gorgeous papers are from a kit by my minds eye called ‘ooh la la’ and the gingham ribbon is from the pretty little ribbon shop

We have a sponsor this week and that is Cute stamps and Cards and they are offering one lucky winner a fantastic Marianne Creatables die.
