Better Late than Never! Pink Ink Sketch Challenge DT - Kathrin's sketch

OMG I have had no internet since last Thursday!! Did you miss me?? I think I nearly went out of my mind with boredom while hubby was on night shifts LOL! It is amazing how much you miss it when it is taken away! Consequently I am very late with my card for the Pink Ink Sketch challenge, but here it is - better late than never! This fortnight we have a gorgeous sketch by Kathrin.

Tilda has been coloured with Prismacolor pencils blended with Sansador for a change. I have added stickles to the hearts and stripes on her socks.

I stamped around the image with the heart holly stamp from the Magnolia Winter kit using bundled sage distress ink and then added stickles over the top. All the edges have been stitched - I tidied my craft room so that I can actually have my sewing machine out again!

I added a couple of chipboard hearts painted with pickett fence crackle paint and the snowflakes were cut with a doohickey die. The little pearl stars are from The Hobby House. I added a clock face cut with Tim Holtz' weathered clock die underneath the image.

The gorgeous ribbon is from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and I also added a snowflake charm from my stash.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Pink Ink Sketch Challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of my teamies' stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x

Of course we missed you, hun! And what a nightmare... few days without internet access. I would feel terrible. I had this few weeks ago for about 36 hours and almost drove crazy... :o)
Your card is so beautiful, love your colouring on her. Such a soft and fabulous artwork.
Hugs, Karina
