Sweet Sketch Wednesday - SSW77

Gosh this week is flying by! It's already Wednesday and there seems to be so much still to do before Thanksgiving tomorrow.  It's also time for another Sweet Sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday! My card this week features the whimsical Bobblehead digis "Pilgrim Boy" and "Pilgrim Girl" from Bugaboo Stamps. Aren't they the cutest images? Join us in the challenge this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and you could win a chance to get these darling digis.

Bugaboo Stamps is the sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Bugaboo Stamps are created by the talented Jodie and she is offering 7 free Bugaboo digital stamps this week to the grand prize winner of the sketch challenge! Thank you Jodie for your generous sponsorship this week!


Here's the fantastic sketch this week created by our own Arlana Patten.  This is a fun one to play with so give it a try and enter a card using this Sweet Sketch! You could easily find yourself winning the grand prize or even in the top three where you'd get to proudly post the Sweet Sketch Wednesday banner on your blog!

For my card, I colored the Pilgrim boy and girl with Copic markers and used a Prismacolor white pencil for the characters' details. I've used my favorite autumn paper from last year - Cosmo Cricket's "Nutmeg" collection. I've also used Stampin Up's Canjun Craze, Bravo Burgundy and Natural Ivory cardstock. For the embellishment I just punched a hole in a silk leaf cut from a larger bunch and then threaded by ribbon through it. I thought it was a good touch for this Fall card. 

Now check out the other creative cards that the Sweet Sketch Wednesday design team is showing today with Bugaboo Stamps (links to their blogs are on my left sidebar).  You'll be inspired for sure.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!
