Papertake Weekly...Sketch #25

Morning everyone, well, what a change in the weather yesterday, we had rain nearly all day and it was a bit of a shock to the system but the garden seemed to enjoy it lol!

Its time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly and this week it's one of Dawn's fantastic sketches and we all know how much you love a PTW sketch lol! This week we are sponsored by Kathe who is an independent demonstrator for The Angel Company and the design team were lucky enough to be given some images to use. I chose this gorgeous little baby giraffe stamp from a set called Hello Baby and I have coloured him with PM's. I've used design papers from a Carol Ann CD and I just love using spots and gingham together...they make the perfect match!

I've used SU! cardstock for matting and the ribbon, pearls and buttons are from my craft stash! I've done a little bit of faux stitching and the letters that spell 'baby' are from an alphabet stamp set I discovered at the bottom of my stamp drawer....fab find aye! lol!

I really look forward to seeing how you interpret Dawn's sketch...see you over on the challenge blog and thanks for visiting me today :)
