Sketch Time at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning everyone!

It's a beautiful spring day here in Rotherham (if a little windy) and we have been very busy this morning!

I've done the big shop, cleaned up, mopped the floors, 2 loads of washing and cleaned the oven!

Any way its Saturday so that means a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge and this week we have a sketch for you provided by the lovely Katie.

I love a good sketch and this was a delight to work with!

I used the oh so pretty Chloe in heart PJ's and coloured her with my Prisma's

The papers are G45  ladies Diary - I can't believe I finally chopped into them - eeek! I did get away with using just one sheet though!

I added lace, gems, a punched border and faux stiching, a few flowers from WOC too (I had to colour some blue ones with a black promarker as I had run out)

The inside follows the same sketch.

I hope you like it and would love to see your take on the sketch too.

Love and hugs

xx Cara xx
