Reminding Me of Olivia

Isn't she sweet? She reminds me of my niece Olivia and is my inspiration for you today for the new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

I absolutely adore this sketch that Sally drew up for the challenge. So many possibilities with the basket-weaving behind the image. I chose to use ribbon but cut strips of coordinating designer papers or lace would work just as nicely.  It's fun to put together so give it a try and join us this week at SSW.

Sally Ann and her shop Digi Stamp Boutique is our sponsor this week. Every month it's a treat to create cards using DSB images. The lucky grand prize winner will receive a £10 voucher to the Digi Stamp Boutique store. Thanks Sally Ann for your generous sponsorship of our challenges every month!

I chose this stamp from the Rosie Collection 1 from Digi Stamp Boutique. As I said, my niece used to pull her hair into ponytails like this with a headband. I had to have this darling Rosie when I saw it.  She was brought to life with Copic markers and I used Stampin' Up designer paper for the background of the card. I love this bright, perky paper!

Now stop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see the fantastic cards the design team created using the challenge sketch - they will get you motivated to create yourself!

Thanks for stopping by!
