Sketch Saturday #53

To celebrate SS's birthday week the DT are each giving away a bag of goodies to one challenger!!! I'm cutting it really fine too - as the card must be linked to their blogs by 8am this morning!

Fantastic sketch to work from again - I love using sketch's since starting these challenges - they are a great way to get you 'thinking' about your layout, rather than doing your own 'automatic' positioning.......if you know what I mean ;)
This sketch I've turned 90* CCW.

I've used a Gorjuss girl coloured with my WC pencils, Nestie to cut her out, ribbon, pearls, chipboard ribbon slider, BG paper and a butter lid! read right! 'Butter-Me-Up' by Tesco to be precise! I have changed by brand since finding out the peel off lid goes through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder to look perfect every time.......................I can't be the only one in Blogland who demands the peel off lid comes off in ONE and is promptly washed and left on my desk, am I?
