On Your Toes! Hanna Stamps Friday Challenge Card

Friday is my day to do the Hanna Stamps Friday Challenge. Today Kerry is the host and chose a sketch challenge, which was a great one. Sketch challenges are my favorite because I struggle with layouts, nice to have it done for me :)
Here is "On Your Toes!" Ballerina Sophie from Hanna Stamps.

I did pretty good following the sketch but did change the panel at the bottom going horizontally as it was just too much of the same color but the designer paper I chose didn't lend itself well to adding another so I decided to cut thin strips of the blue cs and with the red showing through it would work for the sketch. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!

The Spellbinders label 4 really added a lot to showcase the image, IMO, but I do wish that there were in between sizes so that they looked more like a border than the wide border, but I still really like them :)

Sophie was colored with copics and sponged with Tim Holtz weathered wood distressed ink.

The white lace insert in the blue scallopped side panel is from K & Company and is self adhesive paper lace.

Three buttons from my stash and my challenge card is done.

I think Ballerina Sophie is in the spotlight for today and just want to thank Kerry for the great sketch challenge.

See you later with a card that would be perfect for all of those little monkey's you want to send something cute to!

This is my last night of working nights until at least January so you won't see me posting during the day for awhile. I am so not a morning person so the chance that I will get up early enough to post something and get ready for work.... yea, probably won't happen :)

Tomorrow is Artful Sentiments by Kimm BT Copic Challenge day and wait till you see the card I did this week, no flowers and laid back images for me!!!
