A happy mid-week greeting to all of you!  The card I'm sharing today is kicking off the new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. We're so lucky to have the sweet images from Elisabeth Bell to create with this week and inspire you. Let's take a look at the sketch first...

This is a terrific sketch for larger images. Not too many layers this time so the image really stands out I think and it goes together pretty quickly.

Elisabeth Bell Designs is our wonderful sponsor this week. Elisabeth Bell's digital collection features enchanting, whimsical digital stamps all of your paper-crafting projects. Elisabeth offer a multitude of themes such as holidays, special occasions, children's adorable characters and just the everyday cuteness that Elisabeth is famous for producing.

The Grand Prize winner of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week will receive their choice of two of the images shown above - what fun you'll have creating with these!  Thanks Elisabeth for your generous sponsorship!

I picked this darling Elisabeth Bell image called "Click" and colored this cutie with Copic markers. A little bit of sparkle with some stickles and a glitter gel pen make it extra special. I adore the sweet butterfly designer paper from Doodlebug Designs.

I hope this inspires you to join us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Take a look over at the SSW blog - the design team has some amazing creations to share there.  And a reminder that we're having a Design Team Call at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. If you love Arlana's sketches as much as I do, we'd love to have you join us. Just follow the DT Call link to find out how to apply.

Thanks for stopping by!
