Just for you

Isn't this Tilda adorable?
My very kind friend Terry sent this image to me, thank you Terry, she's lovely xx
I coloured her with my ProMarkers to match the papers i've used.
The backing paper is another design from the same nitwit collection I've been using lately, also you may have noticed that I have used the same checked paper as I have in my last 2 SS cards as well. I don't know why, but I've been drawn to that paper lately, but I promise I'll use different papers and a different colour combo next week! :)
The sentiment is from a freebie stamp set with my craft mag, I stamped it 3 times for the sentiment runner. The 3 cute little mulberry roses were in my stash, given to me in a mixed bag of goodies ages ago, they were too pale for this card though, so I gave them a bit of colour with the same blue ProMarker that I used to colour in the rose in the image. Don't laugh at the leaves! I didn't have a suitable small rose leaf so I pinched out some small fern leaves, coloured them with old olive SU ink, then trimmed them down to a more rose leaf-like shape :/

This is my card for this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge, we are sponsored by The Craft Barn this week, and if you are our challenge winner, you could get your crafty hands on an adorable cherub/valentine stamp set!
You know you want it ;) so please give this weeks sketch a go and get yourselves added to mr linky to be in with a chance of winning!

My fellow SS sisters have created more delightful cards, please go visit their amazing blogs. And Bente and Karita will be commenting this week too :)  although they didn't have to join in with making a card as they only joined the team a few days ago and I wanted them to settle in and find their way around, so didn't want to rush them. We all look forward to seeing what they make next week though eh? ;)

Back in a mo with another sketch card :)

  4. Who said blue and green should never be seen?! These papers are really lovely. So, you used them last week? You made two totally different cards with the same papers - how cool is that? Fabby colouring too. xxx

  5. Gorgoeus colour combination Jo .... fab colouring too! Beautiful papers, nothing wrong with getting your money's worth LOL ... I occasionally have a splurge and use the same papers for what seems like every card LOL ... it don't matter how many times you use them the result is always the same ..... PERFECT! hugs Jillix
