Trying to Look Young-Sweet Sketch 67

Gosh I'm so excited - I was in the top 3 for this card in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge 67!

Hi there!  I'm entering this card in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge - this is the first time I'm playing in this challenge.  I've been visiting Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge blog for months admiring their sketches, but alas in the middle of the work week it's been difficult to find the extra time until today.

Here's the sketch that grabbed my attention for a friend's birthday card.  I wanted something that would work with a mix of bright colored DP papers and patterns.  I thought this was just the ticket.

The papers I selected are from American Crafts' Blue Skies collection. Stampin Up Peach Parfait, Baja Breeze, Regal Rose and Whisper White were also used. 

The stamp is from Inky Antics by Ronnie Walter and was colored with Copic markers and cut out using Nesties scallop squares and mounted on a Nesties Lacey Square die cut. 

Overall I'm pretty pleased with how this card turned out thanks to the ladies at Sweet Sketch Challenge for the inspiration on the layout!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Hi Sharon, I'm so glad you have found us and now entered. We have a wonderful sketch each week to work with and it's a load of fun. I just adore your card it's so much fun and I bet your friend will love it!!! Love the design papers such great colours. I looked at another card of yours, your violet card. I do know what you mean about favourite cards I made one a couple of months ago for SSW and its a Digi Doodle image of Pansies in Purple, Mauve and Apple green if you have time have a look this was one of my favourites as well. I've saved it for my sisters birthday coming up soon. I do hope you can join in again more the merrier and we have such wonderful sponsors. Thanks so much for joining us this week at SSW and good luck.
