Cupcake Craft Challenge 74...Sketch

Morning all...we had some lovely sunny weather was still quite chilly but great to have such a bright cheery day after all the rain on Saturday!

We have a new challenge today over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog...Kathrin has created a brilliant sketch and it seem's such a long time since we did one at Cupcake it has made such a lovely change. We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Downloads...she has some really fantastic images on her digi site and she very kindly gave the design team some images to play with...if you want to see all of Di's digi's you can find them here!

It was my intention to do some stitching on this card but the blimming machine wouldn't stitch the thread through the card and paper...all it did was punch the holes...they are a very happy accident though as I was quite pleased with the effect and at least the lines are fairly straight lol!

If you enjoy sketches I hope you'll pop over and join in the fun this week!

Donna, this image is so cute. I love the way she is colored and look at the coordinating papers - definitely delightful! I thought it was paper piercing and thought - wow, look how straight she poked it through - I love accidents that don't work out! ;D
