A Card With Attitude

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday today and we have a terrific sketch for you to play with and a fun theme to follow this week:  Celebrating Women.  We're featuring women in our images from the fun, whimsical digis at Deidre Mosher Designs and we'd like you to use images of women too when you play along.

I love how this sketch that Arlana created plays out on a card - three layers and a spot for a really stand-out embellishment.

Deidre Mosher Designs is our sponsor this week and I love those sassy and unique images that Deidre creates.  The Grand Prize winner of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week will receive a $10 gift certificate to Deidre Mosher's online Etsy store.  A very generous prize that I know you'll enjoy!  Thanks Deidre for your sponsorship!

I selected this Deidre Mosher image called "Couple With Attitude" and think it's just the perfect one for anniversary cards. It was colored with Copics and the papers are from MME Tangerine collection.  I made the flower embellishment by twisting satin ribbon in a spiral onto sticky adhesive paper that I cut with a circle punch. I really like the look of this handmade flower technique.

You just have to see the fabulous cards that the design team made with other Deidre Mosher images of women. Pop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday for the inspiration and then join us in the challenge this week. We love to see what our participants and followers create with our sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
