Cherry on Top!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It's time for another Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and you'll love all the inspiration we're showing you today for the sketch and the sponsor of the challenge.

This week we're bringing back another favorite Arlana sketch from the past and it's a quick and easy one you're going to enjoy using.  I love how the sentiment is prominent in this sketch and the way it shows off the papers you can use with it.

StampFairy is our sponsor for the challenge this week - who doesn't just love the whimsical images from StampFairy! Well we do for sure and are so lucky to create a little inspiration for you with the StampFairy digi stamps.  Gerda, the creator and owner of StampFairy, is generously providing the Grand Prize winner of the challenge this week with 4 digis of their choice. Thanks Gerda for your sponsorship and this wonderful prize!

My card was created using this darling Lenny with the cherries.  It's from the Lenny Fruits collection that you can find here at the StampFairy Shop.  He was colored with Copics and I did a little sponging on the background with Broken China distress ink from Tim Holtz.  All the digital papers used here are from Webster Pages "Sweet Cherry Pie" line - I thought they were the perfect match with this digi stamp. The sentiment stamp is from Amuse Artstamps.

And finally a closeup of the handmade flower I made using Papertrey Ink flower diecuts from the Webster Pages papers and a little twine bow to keep them intact together. Quick and simple but a really nice coordinated look for the embellishment.

Now take a moment to visit the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and see all the wonderful cards the design team made using StampFairy images and this week's sketch. You'll truly be inspired by their creativity.

Thanks for stopping by!
