Sweet Sketch Wednesday - SSW83

Happy Wednesday everyone - it's time for another Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge! Lori Boyd of By Lori Designs is our sponsor this week and my card features "Bumble Bee" from the Lollipops collection at the By Lori Designs blog here.


The Grand Prize winner of the challenge will receive a $10 gift certificate from By Lori Designs! What a fantastic prize - you won't want to miss your chance at that. And all you have to do is create a card using the fabulous sketch below, post your card to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and leave a comment there.


This great sketch, by our talented Arlana Patten, will be one that you'll turn to time and time again. It's such a versatile design and what a blast to create with this sketch and the wonderful digis from By Lori Designs.

The image was colored using Copic markers and then some glitter added on the wings and this little guy's belly. The flowers were created using a SU scallop circle punch with Daffodil cardstock and pages from my local phonebook. You just punch out the circles and crumple them until you get the look you like. A gem brad holds them in place together and adhers them to the card panel. The yellow DP is by October Afternoon "Fly a Kite" and the other panels are hand stamped with Papertrey Ink stamps.

Now scamper off to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog to see the rest of the design team creations for your inspiration. Other By Lori Design digis are featured there as well. Thanks for stopping by!
