The Irony of Sweet Stampin with Sketch and Stash

WOW!  What a wonderful day I have had - twelve hours of non-stop crafting with Alex and Julie!  Alex brought with her a yummy chocolate cake (and the recipe too) and a beautiful gift for me.  This little suitcase style box, stunningly decorated and filled with fabulous goodies: 
Julie, too, did not come empty handed. She brought a gorgeous little easter basket, decorated in colours to coordinate with my craft room (if you haven't seen my room - it is posted on my blog here) and filled with choklit! The photos of both of these beautiful gifts do not do them justice - they really are divine and we had such a brilliant day!
One of the cards I made was for the great sketch over at Sketch and Stash, using my brand new "Jill" image purchased from Mo's Digital Pencil, coloured with Copics.  I used the closest colours I had for the colour theme over at Sweet Stampin of Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Sage Shadow and Blush Blossom using K&Co papers. 
I even coloured the pretty rocking horse ribbon to match. I love the irony of the Hero Arts sentiment in its Stampin Up scallop punch against the grumpiness of Jill!
