Digital Tuesday #19 - A sketch challenge

Hello and a happy tuesday to all my blog visitors!!

The challenge over at Digital Tuesday today is a sketch and it was my turn to host the challenge. This sketch was a real challenge for me even though I picked it. (Note to self: make card first then decide on sketch LOL).

I used my Susie Squirrel in the rain image by Digital Stamp Oasis. It was colored with copics and cut out. The designer Paper is the new SU designer paper Cottage Wall. I absolutely love it and had a hard time cutting it. It is so beautiful.


I really wanted to add some more embellishments but it just didn't look right, so I just added the butterfly and some stickles to Susie's flower as well as the flower centers on the designer paper.

If you're up for a sketch challenge, head on over to the digital tuesday challenge blog, we also have a new sponsor this week, Wendy from Digital Delights is giving a way a $10 gift certificate to her store. Maybe YOU will be the lucky winner!
