Totally Papercrafts Sketch Challenge

Good Morning from a lovely sunny Gozo :-) The weather is gorgeous at the moment ,, sunny but not TOO hot :-) Will get out my book and relax on a sun lounger I think :-) I know a couple of you in the UK are planning a camping weekend so I hope you have nice weather too :-)

anyways ,,, onto this weeks Totally Papercrafts Challenge :-) It was Joanne's turn to set the theme this week and she chose to make a fabulous sketch for us to follow :-)

We are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week and there are some gorgeous Basic Grey papers and epoxy brads on offer so pop on over to the challenge blog to see them ! :-)

I loved the triangular shapes on the sketch and thought it was perfect to use this fabulous HM Floss Boss stamp with it :-) I coloured the image with copics and added clear gel pen to the teeth ,, well they needed to be shiny with all the flossing ! :-) The papers are from a Basic Grey origins paper pack and SU Chocolate chip for layering. I also added some Robins Nest dew drops to finish :-) The sentiment is from a Simon Stamp exclusives set

I made this card for my daughter, Amy, who has had braces on her teeth for about 15 months and her teeth look pretty perfect to me so I am hoping the dentist will remove them soon. I will give her this when they are removed and her teeth all lovely and polished ,,, I am sure she will have a big smile then :-)

Here is Joanne's lovely sketch and I hope you will all join in with us this week :-)

the DT have made some fabulous cards for you to see so hop on over to see them :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)

Gorgeous card Lols, so sweet.
I bet your daughter can't wait to get the braces off I know my son couldn't, and my daughter was gutted she couldn't have them as with all the coloured bands the kids can chose to have on them these days they are a fashion accessory, mad, lol!!!!!
