Sketch N Stash- A sketch with a bit of girly and a bit of bling


Well, Monday is here again - just where did that weekend go?  I know part of mine was spent with our gorgeous great-nephew Sam, who was celebrating his first birthday - we had a lovely afternoon and he even played spin the bottle!!
This is my card for our new challenge at Sketch N Stash starting today.  We're using sketch no 4 from our back catalogue and if you like we have an optional theme of Girly and Blingy.
This fortnight's challenge is being sponsored by the wonderful Stamp Fairy and the team were also lucky enough to be given an image to play with, thank you Stamp Fairy!




I used one of the gorgeously cute Mimi with Teddy range which you can find here.  You will see that the sketch this week calls for two images and that 's the beauty of  using digi images, you can size them to suit, or even enlarge a part of the image to use, as I've done here.

The new items on my card are of course the image, and also the flower die which I bought at Sandown in January.  For the life of me I can't remember who the papers are by, so if you recognise them let me know!  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and the little bow border is from a Magnolia die.

Don't forget to check out the makes from my fabulous SNS teamies - they are gorgeous!!
