Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #16

It's Friday...ALREADY!!!!! I was thinking that after the Mad Hatter's Hen's Party, my weeks might slow down a wee bit... NOPE... I think they're about to get a whole lot busier. I've got to get ALL of my Chrissy shopping done, plus Jorja's 3rd Birthday party organised before we go to Hamilton Island in a couple of weeks, add to that numerous Bridesmaid dress fittings...ooooh la la!!!! BUT..... at least I can still sit down and make some cards... I like to call THAT time, my SANITY time!!! hahaha.

This week Keesh has got a fun Sketch for us... and you all know I LOVE a sketch.

Here is my card for this week:-

And here is the Sketch:-

I think I was VERY brave this week using one of my SCARIEST colours.... Pacific Point, and not just a little bit of it, a whole BIG bit of it!!!! oooohhh. My friends little boy is having a birthday next week, so I thought I'd use Keesh's sketch to make his card, and overcome my Pacific Point fear at the same time.

So I've started with Pacific Point then given I'm terrified of said colour, thought I may as well add a little bit more in the form of some DSP from my Good Morning Sunshine pack. Oh and some excitement... I finally got to use my BRAND NEW Circle Scissors.... yes.. I've been busily cutting out circles of all sizes, for no other reason than "because I can" hahaha. So using said NEW toy, I cut out another piece of DSP from Good Morning Sunshine, then to that added a Choc Chip Circle and a Kiwi Kiss circle (oh this one I used my NEW 1¾" circle punch)...more excitement!!! I've used my Party Hearty stamp set for this card, stamping the Celebrate You image in Kiwi Kiss then adding a Choc Chip button with some linen thread to the centre. I then inked up the Hat stamp from the same set in Choc Chip, Summer SUn and Pacific Point.

I've used two different sizes of Choc Chip ribbon for the "stripes" on the sketch and added a little piece of Hodgepodge.
