A sketch challenge

Happy Tuesday and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hope you had a nice Easter holiday with your families! My husband had to work on Easter - as he does on most holidays - but at least he got off in the early afternoon! Of course that meant the kids had to wait until then for the easter bunny to arrive and they were not very patient. Poor things thought he skipped our house/backyard LOL. Luckily it didn't rain until late at night!!

Now here we are in the last week of April, I just can't believe it! Only a little over a month left until summer break!!! It's crazy!

Since it's tuesday it means we have a new challenge for you at digital tuesday. It was Natascha's turn to choose something, and she designed a fantastic sketch. I hope you'll play along this week!

Here is my card.

I used the image "Moon" by Sylvia Zet from Spesch Designer Stamps, who are sponsoring us this week. The Design Team was lucky enough to be able to choose one of their images. And since I am a huge fan of Sylvia Zet's Art, I just had to choose one of hers.

And here is a picture of the sketch.


I ended up flipping the sketch, as I always feel like my images have to look onto the card instead of off the card, does that make any sense?? My sentiment is from stampin up. I used some night of navy card stock, with some old patterened paper from my stash. Added a punched border and some ribbon, and then finished it off with punched and layered flowers with brads and did some sewing along the edges.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges.
That is all for today. Lucky me I got my laptop back yesterday so hopefully I'll be able to do a little more blog hopping this week!
