Friday Sketchers #55

Good morning all! How bad is the weather today! UGGHH! Oh well, an excuse to stay in and craft, lol! I have made this card for the challenge over at Friday Sketchers. It is a lovely sketch to follow by Jacque.

I got this wee image at the Artstamps Scotland Exhibition at the weekend. He is by Little Claire Designs. I think he is lovely although I am not sure of him on this card. But, that's just too bad because he is staying! I have had enough messing about with this one without changing the image now as well. The papers are the 'Baby Powder' range by Imaginisce. They are 'Fuzzy Jammies' and 'Bubble Bath'. I love them! I have coloured the image with watercolour pencils. The ribbon is from the 'Smirk' range. The flower is 'Mulberry Street by Petaloo'. I have added a spacer and brad to the centre. The charm is from my stash and attached with jump rings ('borrowed' from Mum) to the ribbon. The strip along the bottom is 'Papermania Ribbon Collection - Baby'.

I thought I'd give the charm and the spacers a wee shot seeing as they look absolutely gorgeous on everyone else's cards. Ha! No one told me that I would be fiddling for ages! So, after messing about with the ribbon and charm and jump rings - and making poor Steven 'stand there and put your finger on that' - it was time to start on the spacer! This took three attempts before I gave up! I got in the car and nipped down to my mums and handed the blooming thing to her! Of course, she done it first time, lol!!! I obviously need a bit more practise. But, I think it was worth it in the end!

Hope you like it!
