Penny Black Saturday Challenge #26 - Sketch by Beth

Wowee .. the weeks are flying past, and here we are again at Saturday already ... which of course means it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Believe it or not this is Challenge 26, which means that 6 months have already gone by ... what did we used to do with our weekends before the challenge came into being??

Thanks very much to everyone who joined in last week - it was amazing to see just how imaginative everyone could be when forced to work with no patterned paper! Don't forget to call by the challenge blog later to see who won the gorgeous embellishment box prize so kindly donated by Tracie.

Without further ado, let's get onto this week's challenge, which is Sketch 4 - created by Beth.

I know a lot of us love working with sketches, so we're really looking forward to seeing your interpretations. Please also pop along to the other DT members' blogs to have a look at their fantastic samples, which are sure to give you some great ideas.

This week we have another brilliant prize kindly donated by Becky, which consists of 3 sets of sentiment stickers, and 3 stamps. Here is my interpretation of the sketch. This is a birthday card for my greatest schoolfriend Helen, whose birthday is next Monday. I think I'm safe showing it on here as she is not a blogger .. hope she has a wonderful day.

I used: PB image gifted to me by my crafting friend Karen called "Cheesecake Parade", coloured with watercolour pencils and the flowers decorated with seed pearls. Sentiment is by Stamps Away; background papers by BasicGrey "Two Scoops"; flowers by Prima; ribbon from Hobbycraft; gems by Papermania. The central paper strip was matted onto pink pearlescent card punched with my Multishaper punch.

Hope you like it, and that you all have a good weekend.
