Dance Time

Happy Wednesday! Today starts a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I've created a special card for my niece whose ballet recital is coming up in a couple of weeks.  She is such a good dancer and I always enjoy watching her dance. I know she'll love this card in celebration of her year of accomplishment.

Here's the fantastic sketch that Arlana created for this week's challenge.  It goes together quickly and I like the effect of the diamond focal panel.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is A Day For Daisies and we all love to create with Tammy's digis.  A Day For Daisies provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions. The Grand Prize winner of the sketch challenge this week will receive a $12 gift certificate to the ADFD shop - a wonderful and generous prize.  Thanks Tammy!

This gorgeous A Day For Daisies image is called "Dance Time" and it fit the sketch perfectly.  The beautiful dancer was colored with Copic markers and I edged the diamond panel with a liquid copper paint marker by Marvy.  The lovely papers are My Mind's Eye "Be Happy" from the Follow Your Heart line. A few teeny little pearls encircle the neck and ear of the dancer image. The soft tulle flowers are from Recollections.

We'd sure love it if you played along with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  We are so inspired by the wonderful creations of our players in each challenge.  In the meantime, stop on by the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and see the inspiration created for you by my fellow Divas there - you'll love what you see!

Thanks for stopping by!
