Sketch Saturday #221

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

This image was one of the first one's I ever owned.  It's a Miss Anya by Greetings Farm. She has been coloured with Copics and Sakura sparkly pens. My papers are all from my scraps draw and I think they are all Stampin Up. The card base and papers were cut with Go Kreate dies.   I added a buckle cut with a Sizzix die and some eyelets from the small pot I could find.  I have managed to lose 20 pots of eyelets somewhere in my craft room.  I just can't remember where I put them!   The daisy chain is from an EK Success punch - it makes a straight line of daisies so I had to cut them individually from the chain to make them bend around my shape.  The tag punch is Papertrey Ink with a Stamps Away sentiment and I found the cute little bag in my embellishment draw which I decorated with more daisies and some gems.  I increased the bling factor with the swirl.
It's a great sketch and my teamies have made some lovely cards with it.  Do go and see them, share some love, and then come and play with us this week. 
I'm entering my card into the 
"Shape it Up challenge 17 with my old friends at Stamptacular Sunday
#85 at Cropstop where the chosen 3 are flowers, dots and bling; and of course the
Farm Fresh Friday's "birthday challenge".  This is actually a birthday card although I realise now that it doesn't say so on the front!

Oh this is super cute Lesley! I love this sketch and am working on a card with it right now. The buckle is so much fun and your coloring looks amazing. You've always been a great colorer, but I have to tell you girl that the last couple of months I have seen your skill just growing and growing. It's fun to watch. :-) Hugs!
