Sketch Saturday # 243


It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the wonderful

I thought I would use a Stamp Fairy image for this week's challenge. I just love these teddies!  I rotated the sketch and used some lovely Basic Grey Porcelain papers as my background and an EK Success trellis punch with added  maple leaves.  Sadly my maple leaf punch gave up the ghost and is now clammed shut so I was unable to add another cluster of leaves as per the sketch!
Lenny Memorial Day  is coloured with Copics.  The flag comes blank for you to add your own design.


Now all that remains is to let you know what fabulous inspiration my teamies have provided for you.  Do pop over to their blogs and share some love and then come and play along with us!


I am entering my card into the challenge at : Tuesday Throwdown who want to see our "Furry Friends"

Hey Lesley! What a very cute card! Such a neat idea that you can customize the flag! The dotted background has such a fun, festive look like confetti! LOVE THAT!
Hugs, Dena
P.S. I'll send you some of that watercolor paper to try out and then you can let me know if you want me to get you a larger pad. Not everyone likes it.

Pretty card. Love all the pinkness of course. Have you tried ramming your sissors or a knife into the jammed bit of the punch. Works for me. Hugs Mrs A.
