Sweet Sketch Wednesday #40

Good Morning!  I have great news to share today... I got a job!!  I am so thrilled.

Now we'll get to why you're really here.  It's time for Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Arlana never disappoints when it comes to having a great sketch to play with.  We also have a very sweet sponsor joining us this week.  Kelly Landers with Ippity Stamps is sponsoring this week and talk about some super sweet images.  I want to thank Kelly for being so generous is sharing her stamps with us to play with.

So here's the sketch...


And here's my take on the sketch...


I changed the sketch just a tad for my thought bubble to be the flower embellishment and omitted the element going across the focal image.  I didn't want those sweet feet covered up.

I started with white card base and then covered it with decorative paper that I got out of the Glitter Mat stack from DCWV.  I crimped a piece of Bashful Blue card stock and then stamped the cute scallop border and cut it out.  I colored the image with Copics, but only a little.

Just a reminder, in case you didn't see the announcement on my sidebar, Arlana and the SSW team is hosting a Bunny Hop March 19th, 20th & 21st.  The hop is sponsored by Digi Stamp Boutique!!  Love her images.  So mark your calendar and join in the fun.

Now head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to play along and gets lots of inspiration from the team.  You're going to love all the cards the team made!  Thanks for stopping by.

A job - how cool for you (I'm still batting zero)! I definitely know the thrilling feeling you have! ;P Your cards are always sweet, Melissa. I love this paper and the crinkled blue is so cool - what a great idea! It reminds me to get that crimper. I love how you made the bubble stand out - great effect! (and the bunny ears; super cool effect).
