C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 38 - A Sketch

I have spent hours at the hospital today having a pre-assessment for my op next month to remove the rest of my tooth. I'll be so glad when it's gone, the pain it's given me whilst waiting on the list for the op. This is why I'm so late posting my DT card for C.R.A.F.T.
The challenge this week is a fab sketch by one of our lovely DT members, Eileen. We are being sponsored this week by Debbie at The Crafty Pad. She's offering one of her gorgeous new stamps to the winner, it's called Teddies do Piano.

For my card this week, I've used a beautiful image I found free at Digital Two for Tuesday. The image has been coloured with promarkers, and mounted on pink, then green Bazzill. The 'Friends' stamp is one I bought a long time ago, but it's the first time I've used it. I've added a Martha Stewart butterfly on the swirly bit of the image to which I've added Glossy Accents and stardust Stickles, plus 2 small pink gems. The shape coming off the 'Friends' panel is from a deep edged Martha Stewart punch, which I've coloured with Memories soft rose ink. I've added 3 little roses at the top, also lightly covered with glossy accents and stardust Stickles. I've added 2 ribbons at the base, in dusky pink and green, and a bow. The dp is Anna Griffin on 6 x 6" light green Bazzill cardstock. Lastly, I added some faux stitching to finish it off.

Hope you can join us this week. To see more inspiration please visit the rest of the DTs' blogs listed in my sidebar. Please have your project linked through Mr Linky by Wed 24th Feb at 8pm. New work only.
