Sketch n Stash Challenge 59

I've had a bit more use of the computer and desk this week than I thought I would - my baby hasn't needed the desk as much for her revising and she's quite happy sitting at the dining room table with her books spread out. Yay!

I made this card this morning to enter into:

and here is the sketch:

The rules of this challenge are to use either something new or something neglected in your stash.  I've used a bit of both.  The frame around the image is a NEW design for my Silhouette, they had a sale on over the last few weeks and all shapes were just $75.  And the neglected item is the photo corners which are a Sizzlit die that has been sitting unused in my craft drawers for ages.

The image is a free Precious Moments colouring page (no money to spend on new stamps at the mo), and I've coloured her with Promarkers. Not really happy with the colouring - more practise needed. 

The background papers are from Pink Petticoat and I've used SU cardstock for matting.  And finally, I used my SU Word Window punch and added a sentiment from Clare Curd's stamp set.

Oh, and while I'm here, a quick card I made last night for my other daughter who wanted an acceptance card for a wedding invite.  Last minute request as usual.  It's a very simple card - all I've used is a Cuttlebug heart folder, pink cardstock, pink ribbon, pink crystals and a sentiment printed from the computer onto white card.

Thanks for dropping by, especially if you've had time to leave a comment. Have a good weekend and please come back soon.
