Sketch and Stash Challenge :-) 1st DT card :-)

I have been keeping a secret for the last week or so :-) Becky asked me to be on her DT for the Sketch and Stash Challenge :-) How fabulous is that wooo hooo !! :-) Of course I said YES immediately :-) I was their 1st Guest Designer and I have always been very grateful that they gave me my first break ,, I was very new to blogland then and didn't know anything !! :-) Thanks Becky and the DT for making me feel so welcome :-) I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone better :-)

I have just found out that my lovely blog buddy Pascale will be joining us as GD too :-) Congratulations Pascale,,, so well deserved :-) I am really looking forward to working with you too :-)

So onto my first DT card ! :-)

Becky gave us this fabulous sketch to work with :-)



For the Sketch and Stash Challenge we ask that you follow the sketch and use either something new or old and neglected on your creation :-) I have just bought this Helz Cuppleditch stamp from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and the lovely paw print paper is by American traditional Designs which I bought on a recent visit to the UK,,, I bought 2 pieces so I could use one !!! :-)




I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with antique linen distress ink. The dog patterned paper I have had for ages ,, that is from a DCWV Pet Stack. I used some craftwork chocolate drops in the corners. The ribbon and charm were from my stash :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some wonderful cards for you to see so pop by the Challenge blog to see them and please go and leave them all a comment too :-) Before you hop off I have a candy at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)

Thanks for leaving me a comment ,, don't foregt to leave one so I know you popped in for a visit :-)
