Sketch Saturday #396

It was my birthday on Friday and I have spent the last 3 days celebrating.
Now it's SUNDAY which means I'm a whole date late for our great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Drawn with Character

I loved, loved, loved Debra's sketch.   I loved it so much, you are going to see more of it over the next months.
The recipient of my card received a camera for his birthday present so I just had to use this adorable Penny Black image called "Snap Shot", coloured with Copics, with my spellbinders Curved Borders One dies and Glitz "Sunshine in my Soul" papers.  I can't remember if my "SMILE" die is Stampin Up or Yellow Bicycle but it went beautifully with the metal camera embellishment I found in my stash!
I hope you can spare some time to check out the lovely work of my teamies and then scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.
There were so many challenges I could have entered this week and I've chosen six of them...
The Ribbon Girl - Any image
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes with an optional sketch (which I didn't use)
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes with a DT call
Simon Says - Create with Critters
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes with a die;
and I so rarely use PB stamps that I just had to enter into
Penny Black - Anything Goes

Happy crafting everyone!
