Sweet Sketch Wednesday #64

Good Morning!  It's mid-week so that means it's time for another fun sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Arlana always has really great sketches to work with and sponsors, too.  This week we're joined by Digi Stamp Characters and the prize being offered is 3 digis.  What fun!  They have super adorable images that are great to work with.

So here's the sketch...


And here's my card...


I had a lot of fun with this card because I was able to pull out my Cricut and great SVG files from my friend Penny Duncan.  I used her Scallop Frame file and her brand new file for these gorgeous paper roses.  You can find her files on her blog, Penny Duncan Creations.  I also played along with my friend Katie Skiff's Back to School blog party.  This one is for her color challenge to use Soft Suede, Bashful Blue and Real Red.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Soft Suede, Real Red, Bashful Blue
Paper:  Woodland Collection (Martha Stewart)
Copics:  B00, B000, B02, BV02, C8, E33, E37, R27, R29, RV000, W-3, Y06, Y11, YG63,
  YG67, YR16, YR20
Tools:  Cricut, SCAL, Empressor, hot glue gun, white gel pen

My card is changed a little from the sketch.  I couldn't run the ribbon across the center focal point or it would cut the adorable mouse in half, so I shifted it to the back panel.  I am very happy with how this card turned out and I love love love Penny's rose.  Thanks so much for stopping by, now head on over to SSW for details on how to play along and more inspiration from Arlana and the team.  Have a super Sweet sketch Wednesday!
