Shell's Sketch

I'm scheduling this post a bit earlier than normal cause I'm off in to Aberdeen today and don't want to get bogged down on my blog before I go!

I also think that it's better to be early rather than late although you wouldn't think it as I'm always chasing my tail!  Today however see's the beginning of another challenge over at MAWTT and this time it is Shell who is hosting and she has done us a fabby sketch to follow - I've included it below.
So make us a card, using the basics of the sketch and you could be in with a chance of winning four lovely Meljen Design images - as Meljen's is our sponsor this week.



...so I think that is enough of a reason to get crafting - like you need an excuse!

For my card I went with the lovely Soda for Two image available here.

It's coloured with Promarkers, then the glass given my favourite - a glossy accents finish!

I struggled a bit for papers with my card as I coloured in my image without first checking I had papers to match, but I wanted those colours so I just went online till I found papers that matched.  They ended up being "Whoo's Having A Party - Dot's & Solids" by Raspberry Road - our last weeks sponsor!



So that's what I did with the sketch, now check out what the rest of the team did before joining us in our current challenge over at Moving Along With The Times.
