Blogger's Challenge Sketch!

Hello and Happy Friday! This week's Blogger's Challenge is a fantastic and quite versatile sketch from Lisa Somerville. I'm sure that I'll be using it again! Thanks Lisa!

I started off with a card base of PTI Kraft. The patterned paper is from October Afternoon and the Core'dination green layer is sewed on with my Janome Sew Mini machine. I added a few Foofala buttons to the upper left corner and then some mini pearls to each corner of the card. The Buttercream oval was cut with my Nesties and my sweet little critter is from Stampavie. He's from the Tina Wenke collection and I colored him up with my Copic Markers (B00, B12, B95, B97, B99, E15, E29, E30, E31, E33, E35, R20, YG63, YG67, YR00, YR15, YR18, and the Colorless Blender).

If you'd like some more ideas with this sketch, just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right side bar. You'll be able to find all of the players there. Thanks a bunch for stopping by today! See you soon...Toodles! :D
