The Sketchy Challenges DT - Colleen's Sketch


Woohoo!!  Good morning!  Another weekend already, I just don't know where the weeks are going at the moment!  It is time for another Sketchy Challenge and this fortnight Colleen has provided a gorgeous sketch for us to play with.  I have used papers from Magnolia which I've sewn and added stickles to the edges.
I'm so glad that sweet little Princess Tilda with Ballet Shoes #208 was included in the spring kit!  I've loved all the ballerina Tildas Pauline has drawn but never actually got around to ordering any of them and they're just perfect for little girls!  This one has hair like my little girl too so she's especially perfect!  I've coloured her with copics and added stickles to her crown and tutu although it is rather difficult to tell in this photo!
I had a bit of a play trying to create something similar to Frantage on this chipboard heart.  Not sure it looks very much like the real thing but I love the effect anyway!  The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy and the gorgeous Kort and Godt flowrs are from The Ribbon Girl.
The teeny tiny bows were a gift from my gorgeous friend Louise and are just so cute on girly cards!
The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl - I love this soft pink one!
I used the Cute Corner doohickey #72 in the top right corner - love this new die too!
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join in with our sketch!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations!  Thanks for looking! x
