Sweet Sketch Wednesday

It's the last Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge of 2010 - my how the year has flown by! We have the most wonderful sketch this week by Arlana Patten. I just know you'll want to try your hand at this sketch and enter our challenge!

Our sponsor this week is Jodie at Bugaboo Stamps. These darling, whimsical stamps are so fun to color. The Grand Prize winner this week will receive 7 digi stamps from Bugaboo. Thanks Jodie for your generous sponsorship this week!

For my card, I've chosen "Turtle Love" from Bugaboo. I was anxious to get a start on Valentines Day cards and this cute little turtle is the perfect image for that.

I've used Copic markers to give this image color and paired it with papers from K&Co that I picked up last year in mass quantity! I used Nestie oval and scallop oval dies and a Stampin Up scallop edge punch to achieve the details in the sketch this week.

I sure hope you'll find some time to play along with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week. We love to see the wonderfully creative cards that are entered each challenge. In the meantime, visit our talented design team blogs to see their inspirations for you - that will be enough for you to get your mojo going for the challenge!  Looking forward to seeing what you create with this sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!
