Sketch Saturday #289 Pa rum pa pum pum

It's Saturday and time for another sketch from 
sponsored by our lovely friends at
Simon Says Stamp

This week you can choose any of our sketches after #215 and you can find our sketch archive here.

I so enjoyed putting this card together for a very special cyber friend using this gorgeous image called "Shall I Play for you"  by Mo Manning which you can find here.  My papers are DCWV Old World Winter and I added some musical notes and a drum; both by Memory Box.  I have used a Stampin Up die to cut out the image and the Papertrey Ink sentiment.

I chose this sketch number #248 which was the one I designed myself. Typically, I have altered it a little; flipping it, adding an extra corner feature and of course the drum.  But I HAD to add the drum!!!  You can select any of the sketches from our archive to play along and we look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to tell us which sketch you have used.  Next week, there will be no challenge as we are going to take a little Christmas break but we will be back on 28th!   And here is the sketch I used.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Christmas Creatures;
Loves Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes Christmas;
Creative Inspirations - Traditional Christmas Colours
Digital Pencil 2 - Animals Birds Bees Insects Fairies
