Sketch and Stash Challenge

Thanks for all your wonderful entries last week following my sketch I really enjoyed seeing them :-)

This week on the Sketch and Stash Challenge Becky has made a fabulous sketch for us to follow :-) don't forget to mention what your new or neglected old stuff is as we love to know :-)

We have double sponsorship this week so 2 fabulous prizes for one lucky entrant :-) Stitchy Bear Stamps are offering some gorgeous digi image downloads and The Creative Cottage are offering a paper download kit :-)

Stitchy Stamp gave the DT a choice of digi image to use and the Creative Cottage gave us all a paper download kit too :-) How lovely is that !! :-) thanks to both stores xx

I have never made one of this type of card before but when I saw Christine's card on the House Mouse Monday Challenge DT I thought that this sketch would work perfectly :-)
I chose to use this lovely 'Flip Flops' image ,, I used to look just like her ,,,, in my dreams lol :-) I masked the image and stamped the parasol from the Simon Says Exclusives set behind her, the drink and sentiment stamps on the inside are all from the same set. The papers are a brand new Creative Cottage digi download set and are being released TODAY !! how cool is that ,, we got to use them first !! this set is called Daisy Chain and is lovely :-)

I coloured the image with copics and coloured the edges with wild honey distress ink. I added star dust stickles for sparkly sand and a few spots on the brolly and her lovely glass of lemonade :-) The ribbon and candy dots are from my stash and the shaped chipboard sun has been in my drawer for ever. the flip flops were a gift from a blog buddy and I have had them a while too :-)

Thanks for looking and I hope you will all find the time to join us :-)

You COULD use this sketch and enter the House Mouse Monday Blog Hop Challenge and enter my candy too,, so potential prizes everywhere !! :-)
