Sketch Saturday #169

It's Saturday :)
so that must mean that it's time for another Sketch Saturday challenge!

This week we are sponsored by, who have donated a marvellous prize this week, stop by the blog to find out what it is ;)
there's also a generous discount offer for all our challengers! :)

Here's my card this week...

I've used another hÄnglar and stÄnglar cutie and coloured her with my PMs.
The GORGEOUS background paper i've used is by My Mind's Eye from their Stella Rose/Gertie pad.
I then layered kraft and cameo coral (SU) cardstock to make up the design to match the sketch. I wanted the cameo coral piece to be a bit different and originally thought about using an embossing folder on it, but whilst mooching through my tool drawer I picked up my small star punch and decided to use that instead, and I like how it turned out :)
The ribbon is from my stash, but I think originally it came off a box of chocs, probably Thorntons continental *yum*
The sentiment is from SU's 'Best Yet' set.

The Saturdays have once again produced such stunning cards for you to feast your eyes on this week, as has our talented guest designer, Louise.
