Crazy4Challenges Week Four

It's hard to believe that we are already in week four of our challenge blog. Boy, time flies when you are having fun! I'm looking forward to the month of October, because I am the hostess for the month and I hope that the challenges that I've conjured up will be to your liking!!!
This is our final sketch from Cindy, our September Hostess Extraordinaire!!! She is totally talented overall and with making sketches.........and to let you in on a little secret, she helped me out by designing a sketch for me for next month!!! I'm excited to share it with you!

This card was created with Moffia an image from Stampotique. The Lady bug can be found there as well. My colouring ws minimal on this card as I chose only to highlight a bit with some grey shading (c3 and C5 on this card) and some splashes of red. I used some Christmas red stickles on the dress to add a wee tad of interest! Buttons, Ribbon and Metal Heart were purchased at Michaels, the border punch is Martha Stewart. Prism equivalent for Cardstock is Classic Red R095-E with Black Matting.

I tried to upload the sketch, but for some reason it didn't want to cooperate and since it's going onto 3 a.m. here and I am risking falling asleep mid post, I will send you over to the C4C blog to see the official sketch because I modified mine significantly! My square is much smaller than specified, but you know's fun to follow the sketch completely, but it's also neat to use the sketch as inspiration and play with it to get a different result.

While you're over there, be sure to check out the beautiful designs from our DT.........I am blessed to be associated with such gifted women. Hope you'll play along

Happy Stamping
