Congratulations Sean ! :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you are all fit and well, for those of you on the other side of the pond, I hope the storms didn’t affect you too badly xx

Another Tuesday has whizzed around and it’s time for a fab Dawny’s Sketch on the Papertake Weekly Challenge ! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 voucher on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

As some of you may know my DS, Sean, has just finished at University, here they have the Graduation Ceremony in October ( weird I know ) so I made this card for him :-) I just LOVE this Changito Grad image ,, very cute and hardly any colouring !! :-) I coloured with Copics , E 30, 31, 33 , C 9,6,3 and E 40, 4. I cut the image with a Spellbinders wonky rectangle and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. The papers are from an Authentique Glowing pack and I matted onto black SU card. I used a Die-namics Stacking Stars die, and used a lovely Mortar board charm that I have been saving for this card, it was in a prize I won a while ago on the Peggy Loves Vintage blog, thanks Peggy xx I added some Robins Nest Dew Drops, American Tag twine and a Tim Holtz Word Stick to finish :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Our GD’s and the DT have all made gorgeous cards using this fabby sketch so hop on over to the PTW to see them :-)
