My last DT card...

It's Saturday morning, 8am, so it must mean that it's time for a new Sketch Saturday challenge, yet this week sees my last DT card as a Saturday :(
I will miss SS very much, it's been a constant in my life for the past 4 years.
I'm so grateful that the blog will continue each week (and I've had a sneaky peek at some of the upcoming sketches designed by Jen and omgoodness you are all in for a treat!) I shall definately be joining in as a challenger when I have some time to, like lots of you, SS will be my first port of call when I want to enter a challenge :)

This weeks challenge is sponsored by the ever fabulous Simon Says Stamp and you could soon be treating yourself to a whopping $25 shopping spree in store if you're this weeks challeneg winner!

Here's my final DT card...

This card uses an image from Kenny K, Madison Attitude. I coloured her with promarkers.
The pink cardstock has been embossed with my swiss dots folder and layered onto kraft cardstock which i've also used throughout the card. The 3 different papers are all from Nitwit Collections, which were freebies from a craft mag and have been sitting in my drawer waiting to be used.
The flowers and leaves were made using a mix of punches, the flowers finished with a crystal flat back gem.

There's more beautiful creations from the Saturdays on the blog, where you'll also see the brilliant card from Sarah-Louise, guest designer for May.
And remember, Sketch Saturday are having a DT call, so if you fancy being a 'Saturday' yourself, email Susie with your application. Further details can be found on the blog. Good luck! xx
