My entry for Sketch Saturday and I nearly didn't make it. The standards are very high on the team but I like to exceed my limit now and again and have a go. This was a fantastic one to work with and is the entry to ABC challenge this week which is 'brown and blue' colour combo. Well I think my blue is very bright and I like it. The base is own stash, brown from Summer Driggs downloads, hand cut scallop, image is w/coloured 'milli with chicks' from Pink Gem designs and they have more out on release( I will sit on my hands so they don't walk to my purse). Round text I've heat embossed stamped with Melissa Frances journalling stamp and hand written in white, brown chalking in the top left is Stempelglede Grunge stamp, MS doily lace punch, heart charm is from my daughters trendy belt which fell apart and I kept all the charms on it, brown fibre to create a little bow, bit of faux stitching and doodling, blue sequins added to finish! Hope you like my take on both challenges. Bye for now.
