Poppies In Her Hair

Happy Wednesday friends and followers! We have a new sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday today - a favorite sketch from the past - and a favorite sponsor this week. So let's get started....

Here's the sketch to follow.  It was originally created by Arlana for week 67 and is one that we love for its splendor of embellishments and layers.

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful A Day For Daisies. I'm sure you love the images that Tammy illustrates as much as we do - they make for such beautiful cards.  You'll want to play along this week because the Grand Prize Winner will receive a $12 gift certificate to spend in the A Day For Daisies shop. Thanks Tammy for your generous support of Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

This gorgeous A Day For Daisies image is "Poppy In My Hair" and she's just so lovely. It was fun to color up this beauty with Copic markers and a challenge to get the highlights and depth in her hair.  I used True Love papers from Basic Grey to go along with her.  The large button embellishment was adorned with ribbon using glue dots and adhesive pearls are the finishing touch.

Now pop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to see the amazingly beautiful cards the design team created for your inspiration using A Day For Daisies digi stamps. You'll find a feast for your eyes there!

Thanks for stopping by!
