Critter Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday. Boy, I haven't blogged in almost a week. My family and I went on vacation. We did a 3 day stint in DC, and then 7 days at Ocean City Maryland. We had the best time. It was our first time in DC and I loved it. So much to see and do. Next time I go back, i will definitely do more than 3 days, and OC is always a favorite with us. We love the beach and all that comes with it, so all in all it was a fabulous time!

So, I am back and I got my fingers inky yesterday (boy that felt good), I made my card for today's Critter Sketch Challenge. This weeks challenge is to make any card with the provided sketch by the amazing Lisa Somerville, and guess what?????? This challenge is being sponsored by LIMELIGHT PAPERCRAFTS. For those that are not familiar with Limelight, the are a MUST to checkout. The carry array of products at great prices. One of my favorites!

For my card today, I wanted to combine not onl the Critter sketch challenge, but this weeks Tiddley Inks challenge. Tiddley Inks challenge was a "princess" theme challenge, so as you can see, my card qualifies for both. I new when I saw this image that I wanted to pop up her dress to give her a fluffy look. I am not sure you can notice this by the pic. I also though my Olivia Basic Grey paper (which can be purchased at Limelight), was a great mix with this image.....What do you think?

So, wanna play with us over at Critter Sketch Challenge??? Need a little inspiration? Check out the cards by the DT. THe are pretty amazing!
