Inspired by Fluff

Well another week has passed and it's Saturday morning, so that means it's time for another Sketch Saturday challenge.

This weeks challenge is sponsored by our good friends at The Craft Barn

This week Sandy is very generously giving our challenge winner a prize package worth almost £30! wooohooo! could it be you? the only way to be in with a chance is to join in our challenge this week.

Here's my card...

I have used the totally adorable Little Stars - Moon Lullaby digi stamp available for just 99p from Pollycraft.

Not so long ago, the lovely Faye made this beautifully cute card, she used Super Star, which is another of the stamps from the same Little Stars range from Pollycraft.
Now Faye loves yellow, everyone presumes she loves pink most of all (and she does love pink too) but yellow is her most favourite, and she used yellow as the colour palette for her card. It is a beauty! and inspired me to make a yellow baby card too, rather than automatically reaching for the pinks or blues.
Thank you Faye xx

Of course, I coloured this cutie in with my promarkers, I printed out the image 3 times so that I could layer parts of it once coloured.
I also added some white flock to the little cloud.

The papers used are all by Dovecraft (back to basics) apart from the plain yellow piece which was just from my scrap drawer and punched with my SU eyelet border punch.
The sentiment is handwritten.

I've decided that as well as a new camera, I also need to either buy or make myself a light box / photo box / other (delete as appropriate)
especially with the dark nights coming fast, I need to use my daylight lamp more often to take pics, and unfortunately that means glare (because I must be doing something wrong!) so I need to diffuse the light somehow.

Anyway, here is a close up of the layering of the image and the flock on the cloud...

Edited to add:
had another go at taking a photo in the daylight

Please stop by to see the beautiful cards made by The Saturdays this week, we also have the final cards by Jessica (our GD for September) and Lisa, who has decided to step down from the Design Team :(
I'd like to thank them both for sharing their talents with us all.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

Hope you all have a fab weekend xx
