SAS Thursday Challenge!

Whoo Hoo! It's Thursday and that means..........
Stamps and Smiles Challenge #6.

Here's this week's sketch for you to play with.
(There's no time limit to any of the sketches).

I just LOVE these pretty sketches, don't you?
Please join in and when you've created your card, put a link to it on Stamps and Smiles.

Here's my card.

This card was made using the 'Cuppy Love' set.
See all the SAS sets at the Stamps and Smiles store.

I turned the sketch on it's side and coloured Cuppy with Copics.
She's SO easy to colour!
I shined her ribbon with Glossy accents.
The flowers are Papermania, with a dot of Liquid Pearls in 'Ruby Red' in the centre.
The leaves/branches are from my Leone Em punch. The spotted pink DP is SU. The background paper is one from my stash of ones I collect on my rounds of craft shops.
The larger dots are sparkly but you can't tell in this photo.
(I'm not brilliant at photography as you may have gathered). LOL
The 'I love you' sentiment is from this set too.
........................

Using the same sketch, I made this for my Brother -in-Law as it is his birthday today.


Happy birthday Edward!!!
Image stamped from the SU 'Lovely as a tree' set.
The papers are SU Retired DP 'Certainly Celery' on a CS of bashful blue.
I matted the SU 'circle of friendship' stamp on black card, punched out with a flower punch, as I seem to have lost my smallest scalloped Nestie! Oooh Nooo!
The 'family' sentiment is one of a boxed set of six by Hero Arts called 'Word Borders'.
The little arrow and the round green brads are from my stash.
Don't forget to visit Stamps and Smiles for further details and to see the other Sketch Team member's fabulous creations.


Thanks for dropping in. Feel free to leave me a comment.
I'd love to know what you think. ;0)

Wanna know what I think? I think this card is too stinkin' cute!! Love the way you colored Cuppy and the primas and leaves add a nice touch.

The card for your BIL is great too. You did a great job on the "man" card. Those are so hard for me to make.

Viv,
These are both perfect. The pink one so pretty and the one for your BIL is so classy. As we all know cards for men are notoriously difficult.
As I have told you before, your cards are always a joy to view.
