happy Sunday everyone!
I am off to see Cirque Dreams today with a whole lot of my family!
14 of us actually!

I did want to share with you though my card from the Crafts4Eternity Sketch Challenge! I played with some funky paper and drew my color selection from it. Not colors I would normally stick together I don't think but they worked for this one! Funny how that is sometimes :)

I colored my image with Copic Markers, pop dotted her to an oval I cut using my nesties lg. oval dies and ran through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I used French Lilac Palette Ink to edge the oval as well as to highlight the dots. The purple paper is a scrap I found in my box it looks like a bit of Bazzil but I am not 100% sure on that. i edged it also with the French Lilac. The ribbon is a great piece in purple from Really Reasonable Ribbon and then the patterned paper that started it all is again a scrap from my scrap bin. I layered everything up on a pink base card. Decided at the end I should of edged the pattern paper to make more contrast but no way was I trying to peel apart those layers as I used some red line stuff in there - Super Sticky!

I added the pearls from Paper Studios to the opposing sides on the top and bottom to balance it out a little bit.

Hope you enjoy and give this sketch a try too!
Just hop over to Crafts4Eternity to find it and the other DT members cards!
