Friday Sketchers Card


I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend! I'm having lots of fun back in my craft room and got to make this card using the gorgeous sketch by Jeanette over on Friday Sketchers. This cute elephant arrived in the mail last week from The Little Stamp Shoppe and I couldn't wait to ink him up and get colouring! This was one of the many colouring projects I completed upstairs whilst my craft room was drying out!

I felt this sketch fit this image perfectly and I'm so happy with the way this card turned out. The grey dp is from MME Asparagus collection (one of the double-sided sheets) and the pink polka dots is from stash. I used my copics to colour and I distressed the nestie circle and clear embossed some swirls around the edge. The photo below should show a closer image of this.
Prima flowers, spacer and gem brad, together with the MS branch punch and a Bosskut floral scroll die complete the embellishments. Oh, and 3 pink pearls down in the right hand corner! And some stitching!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek today! We spent most of today in the gorgeous sunshine in our neighbour's pool so we're all wiped out and ready to crash! Hope you all have a wonderful evening or Sunday (depending on when you get to read this post).
