A Spoon Full of Sugar - Sketch by Michelle

Our new challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar has just started and this week we have the below fabulous sketch for you which was created by our talented Michelle. Thanks Michelle, I loved working with it!

I hope my card doesn't hurt your eyes.. lol! I just love these funky Lime Rickey papers by Basic Grey. The cute image is by Scrapmagasinet. I sell these cute baby stamps individually over in my store. They can also be purchased as a set which work out greater value.

I have coloured baby Gute with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I added some Apple Green Jute ribbon to my card for some fun texture.


A close-up of the wire word sentiment:




We have a great prize this week of 3 digital stamps of the winner choice which have been kindly donated by kendra from the
Character Cafe.

Our wonderful guest this week is Tab . I adore Tab's gorgeous cards. Be sure to visit her blog.

Be sure to check out the gorgeous cards from the rest of the team too!

Hugs,
