Sketch Saturday #411

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by

I didn't have time to find and print or stamp an image for this week's card so I used one from one of my LOTV art pads and over-coloured it with my Copics and Promarkers.  The additional colouring widens the palette of the pre-printed image and makes the image a little more vibrant.  I gotta improve my photography though - I seem to be taking horrible quality photos!

I used Crate Paper "Party Day" with some DCWV for the backgrounds and popped a large ribbon banner across the centre in keeping with Kathy's fun sketch this week.   I think the "happy" is either a Stampin Up or Yellow Bicycle die.   I used Dienamics dies for the numbers and my Cricut for the "th".  Flowers are from my stash and the leaves are a Martha Stewart Punch.

Do please share some love with my fellow Saturdays and then scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.

I'm entering my card into the challenges at The Ribbon Girl where it's anything goes on a card, and Deep Ocean who want to see Flowers Everywhere.
