Exciting News and Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge

Hello my friends,

Today I am very excited and happy to share some news with you along with a card. Today's card is my very first DT card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday !! Whooo Hoooo!!!

 For the past year I have looked forward to Wednesdays for the SSW sketch and tried to play as often as I could and if I couldn't play along for the challenge I always saved the sketch and used it somewhere on a card. (Yes, I've printed out every week's sketch an kept them in a notebook for easy reference). Arlana's sketches are always fun and creative, you can use lots of layers or keep it simple,  add embellishments, and/or  lots of one of my favorites  ribbon.

This week we have a fun sketch for you, you can keep it very clean and simple or you can add all those extra embellishes that we all love to hoard,

Our sponsor for this week is Shirley2girls
Kristen is offering a $10 gift certificate for the winner of this challenge
Be sure to take a moment and stop by the store it is just full of adorable images.

For my card I used  Shirley2Girls image called Voyager Traveling  you can find her here

Card detail:
Card base and matting is using SU Elegant Eggplant, Bo Bunny new Peacock Lane Ivy and Peacock Lane Bleu DP, tiny heart embossing folder for mat background, Polka dot embossing folder on Elegant Eggplant strip,  Prima and Bo Bunny flowers, ribbon and flower center gem is from my stash.

Now hop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge blog, be sure to check out the fabulous creations by the Design team gals that I am so honored to be playing with. Then come play along with our sketch, I would love to come visit your blog to see your take on this week's  sketch.

Thanks for visiting, I hope to see you over at  Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Have a crafty day
