Sweet Sunday Sketch #57 {wish big}

Happy Sunday!!! Hope you've had a FABULOUS weekend. It's time for another FUN sketch from Karen, and this week she's got an absolute RIPPER for you. Now, before I show you, you have to PROMISE not to get scared and to have a go... PROMISE!!!!

Ok, so now that you've all promised me that you'll play along here's my card for this week:-


And here is Karen's "RIPPER" sketch:-


Now like I said... don't be frightened... well ok, you can be a little bit scared.. I was a little scared at first.. BUT... once I started playing I actually found it to be FUN and not really all that scary.. well OK it took a little bit of playing, and a few BIZARRE colour combos... (*waving girls*) after our little chat last night, I opted to go for something... um shall we say... a little less Easter Egg Huntish!!! hahaha

I've gone with a Kraft base and the colours I've chosen are Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Choc Chip, Very Vanilla.
My strips are a combination of both DSP and hand stamped DSP using my Framed with Love set. I used Pink Pirouette ribbon for my middle strip and rather than circle (which I LOVE) I decided to have a whirl at creating my own Ribbon Flower. I've been wanting to have a go at these for AGES... and t'was HEAPS of fun... Go on have a go!!!!

So there you go.. I think this might go in my 'Little Girl's" Birthday pile, I'm actually really happy with how it turned out. "BONUS!!!" hahaha

Be sure to pop on over and visit the other Sweet Sunday Stampers for some AMAZING inspiraton, they NEVER fail to inspire:-


And don't forget to link your card to Mr Linky over at Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.
