Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--It's a Sketch !!!

Our hostess this week at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge  is  the super talented Jackie and she has  chosen one of my favorite types of challenges.....the Sketch!!! Takes half the work out of the card LOL.   Thanks Jackie :) Here is my card using Sassy Sally Reads to Teddy

The image was colored with copic markers and then cut out with my fiskar's oval cutter.  The background label is a frame cut with the cricut and both were sponged with distress ink to just bring out the edges a little. 

I used red and white polka dot dp for the main dp and white for the cs base.  A white grosgrain ribbon simply tied on the left side keeps the ribbon element simple and I love the flower I created for the upper right hand corner.  I bought the i-Top covered brad maker several years ago and haven't gotten it out for a while but I saw it the other day and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  I tied bakers twine in two red buttons and walla, my sketch is complete,( and I didn't even cheat, too much, I changed the size of the circle to an oval and the panels have larger gaps between, )   and my card is ready to send.  Love the way it turned out :)  Yea Pat, I'm back, I know you  are laughing at my cheating....or my efforts to be good...guess I am getting back to normal LOL.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT and see how closely they followed the sketch...did they turn it, or add flowers and a sentiment or buttons...so many possibilities.  Also check out the Sassy Cheryl's Digi store and see what my Sassy Boss lady has created for you this week.  and as always grab something new and adoreably Sassy and play along in the challenge for a chance to win  2 images ....you can't win if you don't play along and it is so much fun to see what you create...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
