it is Sandra's DT week...

.... over at Sketch Saturday, and Sandra has created a wonderful sketch for us!

you decide if you want to add a sentiment, and where, or don't add one at all - it's upto you ;)

Sandra is also sponsoring her DT week, offering FIVE winners the choice of 3 single images each from her digi stamps site

Sandra Dry Digi Stamps have the most stunning designs, please go take a look at what is available by clicking HERE.

Here is my card...

I have used one of Sandra's new designs... Ruby, isn't she lovely?
although to get a better/cleaner look at this lovely image, please go to Sandras blog,
unfortunately my printer is in need of a thorough clean/service, and it is leaving ink streaks on all images that I try to print...very frustrating!!

Ruby is coloured in with ProMarkers (note the purple tights, because of those annoying ink lines)
The patterned paper is a scrap piece I had left, it is called 'family translation' , I think the collection name is 'Sonnets', not sure though to be honest.
I have used stampin up 'bordering blue' cardstock, which I have embossed with my paisley folder, and then sponged the edges with the same coloured ink.
The white piece was also embossed with my paisley folder.
The sentiment is a little sticker which co-ordinated perfectly.
The flowers were punched from the same patterned paper with my boho blossoms punch from stampin up, I used the largest and smallest flowers, used my embossing tool to make them more 3D and then layered them together, finishing with a pale aqua coloured pearl in the centre of each, the leaves were punched from pale lilac cardstock using my woodware 'ash leaf' punch.

Thanks for looking! please go visit the rest of the design team, their work is always stunning!

This week also starts our new MONTHLY guest designer slots, and for the whole month of August we will be joined by the very talented Mina - Welcome to our little family Mina! :)
