Hello everyone and welcome to another 

Today our challenge is a sketch


This was a bit of a challenge for me as I don't have a circle die cut.  I tried several times to cut a circle out and failed finally settling on the scallop.  I was a bit off with the centering but oh well still OK I think.  

For my card I chose Sassy Studio Designs Masquerade 3.  I love the way her dress flows.  This image is about to retire so hurry up and get her before it's too late.  

I colored her with Copic and Whisper Strokes markers.  I added a bit of Stickles and Glossy Accents.  The papers come from Bazzill, Create with TLC, Papercraft Inspirations and generic.  I am proud to say all the paper came from my stash.  Even the digi papers were printed on paper I had in stash.  The gems I added are from Kaiser however they were supplied to me in a candy from my lovely Sassy Sister Kim. Thanks Kim, I love them.  The sentiment is from Joann Craft Essentials and I have no memory of where the poinsettias came from.  They were the last I had so I am going to have to find some more.  

Please hop over to Sassy Studio Designs and check out all the other creations made by all the lovely ladies over there.  Hope to see you in the challenge this week.
