SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS is sponsoring another challenge (2 actually).

Tuesday Morning Sketches

and here is the sketch

I have taken some creative liberty with the design.  I had no idea how to make this shape as my cutting skills are not fabulous and I don't have a die anything like this.  

The second challenge SSD is sponsoring is Tuesday Alchemy

Tuesday Alchemy

Their challenge today is Anything Goes.

This made it easy to combine the two together and there you have it.  

I chose to do another card for "Breast Cancer Awareness".  This is such an important cause and you can even send your finished cards to Link Up For Pink and they will put them to good use.  This is why I made two:

I have used SSD image Pink Ribbon Sassy along with a sentiment from SSD that was a freebie a couple Fridays ago.  I colored her with Copic, Stampin' Up and Whisper Strokes markers and distressed the sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  The star design comes from Lyndsey & The Little Claire team.  It's for a Christmas ornament so I adapted it for this.  The papers are Core 'dinations, Paper Pizazz & some generic.  The ribbon is Basic Narrows.  I then added some pearls from Queen & Co.

Now head over to Sassy Studio Designs and see the other fabulous creations my teammates have come up with and don't forget to join in the challenges we are sponsoring.

I have entered these challenges:

Link Up For Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness
Sentimental Sundays #123 - Anything goes
Forever Friends #46 - Anything goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything goes
3 Girl Jam #4 - Anything goes + ribbon
Craftymess #19 - Anything goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon #57 - Pretty in pink + ribbon
Oozak #7 - Die cuts 

Thanks so much for your visit today.  Hope you have a fabulous day!

Your stars are so beautiful! Your coloring is fab, and I love the design! You were right to go your own's a perfect interpretation of the sketch, and you didn't spend an hour trying to get the circle sizes right for the petals like I did. LOL Awesome ornaments!

Beautiful tags! Thank you for joining Link Up for Pink, hope to see more of your cards entered.

Jessi Fogan said...

LOVE your take on the sketch! It took forever for me to stop interpreting them literally (well, I still do, sometimes) but your card totally has all the elements - and is so unique! Love the dimension folding adds, and how fun to have her with pink in her hair! (As a side note, I did that last year, and it was FUN!)
