Sweet Sketch Wednesday #48

Good Morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Arlana has another fabulous sketch for us to use this week and one of my favorite digi-stamp companies is back to sponsor us.  Jodie from Bugaboo is the sponsor this week and she's offering 7 digi-stamps to the randomly drawn winner.

So here's the sketch we're working with...

Cute, isn't it?  There is so much possibility to this sketch!  Here's my take on it...

I used the Desiree sitter image - I think she is soooo cute!  Do you happen to recognize the materials used?  I used an old Simply Scrappin' kit and I mean old.  This was Fresh Flowers and when SU! first introduced these kits, they were only available in 8 1/2 x 11.  I've been cleaning out my craft room and I came across this kit.  This kit contained card stock called Rose Romance which retired a long time ago, but it matched this other fabulous find I had in my stuff.  See the twill tape?  It's from Making Memories.

OK readers, I want your honest opinion, too.  I am trying to learn how to color shiny hair.  Does her hair look shiny or does it look like I made her into Bride of Frankenstein at age 4?

Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Rose Romance, Lovely Lilac
Paper:  Patterned card stock from Fresh Flowers Simply Scrappin kit
Copics:  C8, C18, BV02, BV00, E00, E02, RV000, RV02, RV10
Tools:  Nesties scallop, CM Circle cutters, Cuttlebug & CB Folder Swiss Dots
Embellishments:  MM twill tape, Prima Flowers, Sugar-Coated brads by Doodlebug

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Now head on over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog to find out how to play along and get more inspiration from my fabulous teammates!  Have a Sweet Day!
