Ocean's Little Girl

Welcome back my friends. Today, we have a new sketch challenge starting at Sweet Sketch Wednesday with an all-time favorite sponsor of ours and our fans - A Day For Daisies. My card was created to celebrate the birthday of a sweet friend of mine at work and she loved it!

First let's start with this elegant sketch for you to follow by our talented Sally Dube. This looks terrific and is quick to go together so I hope you'll give it a try and join us in the challenge this week.

I always love creating with the wonderful images that Tammy creates at A Day For Daisies. You'll find a huge selection of digi stamps there, from whimsical to children to beautiful vintage-looking images. As the sponsor of our Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week, Tammy is generously providing the grand prize winner a $12 gift certificate to the A Day For Daisies digi stamp shop. You have to be in it to win it as they say, so get out your supplies and start creating with our sketch!

I chose this beautiful mermaid image called "Oceans Little Girl" from A Day For Daisies to create my inspiration card for you this week. I think our sketch this week is just perfect for it. She was brought to life with Copic markers and then glittered up. I sponged the cloud effect in the background to fill the white space in the oval. The paper is Teresa Collins' Fabrications Canvas collection and the cardstock and ruffly ribbon is the new in-color Pistachio Pudding from SU.

So there you have it for this week. I hope I've inspired you to join in the fun this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Now stop on by SSW to see the beautiful creations with A Day For Daisies images the design team made to entice you to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sharon, love your card this week and those pretty aqua colours just perfect for this image. I bet your friend at work really loved it when she opened it up. Love her glittery body. Take care and have a great week.
