Get Sketchy with Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Boy, these weeks sure are passing by quickly.  Keep thinking that I really must start my christmas cards but too much of everything else going on at the moment.
It is my youngest daughter's 21st birthday at the weekend.  We are having a BBQ party at home for family and friends.  At the moment the weather forecast is looking pretty good.  But you can imagine I have a million and one things to do before then.  So apologies if I am a bit absent for the next few days.  Promise I will post some piccies of the birthday girl.

Anyway, back to business.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.
We have a fab sketch challenge for you this week.  Just create something using the sketch and upload it to the challenge blog.
We have two fab sponsors this week who are both offering fab prizes.  We have The Paper Shelter and My Heart Pieces.  Pop over to the challenge blog for more details and to enter the challenge.  The design team have come up with some fab projects for your inspiration.

Here is the sketch we are using.

and this is the card I created using a wonderful image from The Paper Shelter.

This is a pre coloured image that I have used to create this card.  Love having a go at colouring but sometimes you just want something for quickness.  The background paper is from Papermania and I embossed a piece of pearlescent paper for the image to sit on.  I inked round the edges of all the papers with distress ink to add a bit of interest.  I didn't want to overdo it with the embellishments so stuck to a few roses, some heart pins and some pearls.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Hooked On Craft - Lets Celebrate
The Crafty Pad - Show some metal (decorative pins)
Pile It On - Add some metal (decorative pins)
Pretty Little Ribbon - Add bling or sparkle
Papertake - Anything goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
Fab N Funky - Use pearls or rhinestones

Thanks for popping by and look forward to seeing all your lovely creations.
Take care.

Hi Mags,
What a sweet card. I love the image you have used, pre-coloured or not doesn't matter, we can't all be good at everything (I am still learning to colour too!!)
Beautiful embossing, I have that folder and it is so pretty and versatile.
Hope all is well with you.
