The Sketchy One

Good Morning to you, my lovely blog chums.....I hope that this finds you well, in yourself, and keeping your chin up. 

It has been a challenging few days here, as I mentioned before, my husband is having to "shield" isolate , and obviously I am doing pretty much the same by way of solidarity and support, but he is struggling with this at the moment, feeling miserable and in a way loosing sight of why it is so important that he does these measures......I, literally, Thank God every day that I have things to occupy my mind, like my craft projects - otherwise, I fear for HIS safety, lol !!!!

Anyway, on to today's card:
I had coloured this gorgeous image and spent ages faffing around trying different papers and layouts, but nothing felt "right", then I stopped for a while - found a fabby sketch and everything just fell into place! This super cute image is  called "dressed up" from LOTV,  in the full image she is wearing a pretty little frock, she is coloured with promarkers. The several different dies used here: The circular frame features a faux stitched scalloped edge die from The Works, a tiny scalloped edge border, and then a lovely lacy border die, which I think was from Marianne designs. I used an embossing folder that was a  old magazine freebie.

This is the sketch I used:
