A new Peachy Keen Challenge!

 Whoo hoo! Today we have a sketch to play with.......


(I love sketches, they provide most of the brain work when mine doesn't). LOL
 This sketch has so many possibilities and I'm sure you will all come up with something amazing if you play along with us.

Here's what I made..............


(In my opinion, the best well made stamps on the market). 
She's a delight to colour and can be used in so many different ways. There are 6 stamps in this set which makes it REALLY versatile.
( For instance, I could quite easily have put the smiley face in the balloon and the 'happy birthday' where the pink pearls are). I could have put a pocket on her dress, or the flower maybe?
I chose to keep it fairly plain today but used my Sakura pen to create the spots.
The 'Love', 'Precious' and 'Wish' are acrylic stickers that I've had and never used 'till today. I thought them most appropriate for a little birthday girl. I created the border with a MS punch.
I hope you like my take on the challenge and that you will play along for the chance of a fab prize offered on the Peachy Keen blog.....
Rush on over there and check out the amazing samples made by the rest of our fabulous DT.
Their creativity always leaves me speechless.

Thanks for calling by

Viv you have done an amazing job coloring that little cutie. What a great idea to put polka dots on her dress. I thought you had paper pieced the dress and the balloon is popping off the page. Great shading!
Hugs, Janice
