A Sketch Card

I love trying out new sketches and when I saw this one on this week's Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge, I really wanted to give it a go, so here is my take on the sketch:

I've had the image for ages, and guess it was a freebie around 'blogland' at one time. I've always thought it was so sweet but never really had any papers to go with it until I bought the Tea House papers a couple of weeks ago. These papers will be perfect for any image with a cake in! I've used 3 of the papers from the pack to make this card, and the border was created with some gemstone card stock and a MS doily punch. I know that the image has been cut slightly out of 'square', but that is what happens when you make cards late at night! By the time I realised it was too late to do anything about it. I've coloured the image with promarkers, and added glossy accents to the cherry on top and the ribbon around the cake. The pearls are from my stash. I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stamping Vacation - any creature that appears to have arms

Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge - sketch

Phindys Place Challenge - make us smile

Make it Colourful - bright colours

Paper Play Challenge - critters

Passion for Promarkers - yellow & pink - dp and cardstock pink; yellow ribbon on the cake - image coloured with promarkers
