Sketch & Stash DT card - #25




Hi everyone, it's time for the Sketch & Stash challenge again, and this time you've got four weeks to join in, as our next challenge won't be until the 4th January next year (how strange that sounds)
Yet another fabulous sketch from Becky and I've already used this for a couple of other projects too, so it's obviously going to be another one that I'll keep using.

Card Details:
* Image - Whiff of Joy 'Uru and Bird'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - My Mind's Eye 'Wild Asparagus'
* Punch - Martha Stewart 'Doily Lace'
* Nestability - Labels 4
* Everything else from my stash

I was lucky enough to win this adorable little stamp recently and it was a joy to colour. I decided to use a pastel colour scheme for this one, plus I thought it suited this little character quite well.
I've actually managed to finish all my Christmas cards now, so I was quite pleased to be able to make a card that had nothing to do with Christmas, for a change!

I do hope that you'll manage to join us at Sketch & Stash at some point over the holidays as we so enjoy seeing all your wonderful creations. Please don't forget to check out the other DT cards, they're sure to provide you with huge amounts of inspiration.
