Sketch challenge #2

Hi all!  TGIF, and that means another bellariffic challenge.  This week we have a sketch to follow.
I pulled out this cute Izzie image to colour - Izzie has a lettah. Perfect for Valentines or anytime!

Not your typical Valentine colours, but does it always have to be red?  Anywho, she was coloured using copics after she was stamped on bella's bestest paper. Shading and grass was done with prismacolour pencils. I cut her out using an oval s/binder die, then layered her onto a piece of aqua bazzill paper cut using s/binder labels twenty.

Designer paper is by October Afternoon - Sidewalks.  I know the sketch didn't call for much of anything else, but it looked so plain, so I added some polka-dot chiffon ribbon and a little heart tag - which is also a s/binder die, and the sentiment is an old bella sentiment.

Be sure to stop over at bloggabella to see all the other entries for this week.  Leave a comment for a chance to win $10 in bella bucks.

Next week our challenge is a theme - You are so Sweet - I'm thinking this is along the Valentine line, but hey you can make it whatever you like as long as it is sweet!  To play along and a chance to win $20 in bella bucks, all you have to do is email Emily your entry by Thursday night - it's that simple!

Enjoy your weekend everyone, and thanks for the visit today.

Wow, this is lovely! Love the pretty colour combo and LOVE that the pattern paper slightly mimics that gorgeous die!

YAY! Blue and yellow--my fave! :-) She's just precious Pauline. The die cut really makes her pop and I adore that sweet little tag. Hugs!
