A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 45 - Sketch by Lim


For our Challenge this week we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow which has been designed by our very talented Lim.


We have a great prize this week of the below stamps - Rainy Day Emma and Baseball Connor. These have been kindly donated by Denise from Whimsy stamps.
Our Guest Designer this week is Debby. I love Debby's work! Please do take time to go and visit her. Her blog is bursting with inspiration!

For my card this week I have used a new Hanglar. The sweet papers are Daisy Bucket - Perfect Harmony. I found this cute little birdhouse button in my stash which I had picked up at Ally Pally last year. Image coloured with Prisma colour Pencils with Sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The sentiment was printed via Word onto an off white Bazzill. The tabs to the bottom left of my card were cut using the SU Word Window punch. The flower have been created using SU Petal punch. I think that's it!

Hope you find the time to join in our challenge this week.

Big Hugs,
