Sketch challenge #3

Hi folks, hope your week is going well, good thing is, it is Friday- TGIF!!!  And with that being said, I bet you are here for the Bellariffic challenge we have going this week.

This week we had a sketch to follow.  Knowing I always need baby shower cards, I thought this image fit perfectly for the sketch layout this week. I'm using Teddybella, now if you want her she is going fast.  I see she is at a reduced price of $4.99!! This image is one of my favs along with babycarriageabella which is no longer available (insert sad face).

As always I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and coloured her with copics.  Shading around her was done with prismacolour pencils.  After I cut her out using a square s/binder die I sponged some bashful blue (SU) around the image.

Designer paper is my MME -- On the sunny side. Button die is from Memory Box.

To finish this off I did some stitching, added glitter to her top to make her sparkle!, I also added some white dots using a white pen on one of the shopping bags.  Also added some buttons to the button border.

For more inspiration on this weeks sketch, stop over at bloggabella and leave a comment while your there for a chance to win $10 in bella bucks.

Next week challenge is  ANYTHING GOES -  easy eh? As long as you use a Bella image, your off and running.  You can email Emily your card by thursday night to be included in the show down on Friday, also a chance to win $20 in bella bucks.  

Also don't forget about our challenge we have going on over at SCS. The theme is 'thoughts of spring'.  You can read all the details here.  Closes Monday 18th.

See you again real soon.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend, stay warm (cool for some), and stay safe- winter storm hitting southern and eastern Ontario today!!
