One More Candle

Happy Wednesday friends! It's time for another challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday with the fun Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor this week. Being part of the over-50 club and my birthday this Saturday, this image expresses exactly how I feel - hah, hah! So let's not dwell on another year's passing, instead let's take a look at this week's sketch...

We're repurposing a sketch from the past - this one drawn up by Arlana first appeared in challenge week 163 and it's a dandy to be repeated. I like the layered look that is achieved with this but it's not too fussy either.

Just for fun, here's my card from the first time this sketch appeared in July 2012.

The sponsor of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week is everyone's favorite - Bugaboo Stamps. There's a ton of sweet, whimsical and hysterical images that Jodi creates there. The grand prize winner of the challenge this week will receive 7 free Bugaboo digis totaling $21. A super prize package - thanks Jodi for your generous support!

The Stella character images at Bugaboo are by far my favorites! And as I said, this one especially spoke to me this week.  It's called Stella - One More Candle and was colored with Copic markers to match the MME papers I selected. I used crystal lacquer in several areas, along with a glitter pen, to make the image shiny and sparkly on the details. Such a fun birthday card don't you think?!

So now, you'll have to stop on by Sweet Sketch Wednesday and check out all the fun cards the team created using these wonderful Bugaboo Stamps.  I hope you'll find some time to join us in the challenge this week too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hahaha, love your card! Stella's words of wisdom are priceless. Happy Birthday to you Sharon but remember, we will forever be 49 -- unless the law tells us we can't lie about our age!!! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Hi Sharon sorry I think I'm loosing the plot, I thought I had already commented on everyone's cards last week. Love your super cute card, with Stella and I've wanted to use this image for ages, wasn't sure if everyone would think it was appropriate but I love it. Your colours are perfect together and this would make one amazing card for my older sister. Love your added embellishment flowers they're really lovely. This is a darling card especially with such a cute Bugaboo image. Take care hope your week is going well for you?
