C4E Sketch Challenge, Just Magnolia & Simon Says Stamp

Sunday already, where has the weekend gone??? Well I was working yesterday so lost half of it really, better make the most today crafting, got loads to do, inluding playing with my new birthday stash, woo hoo.
Anyway, onto this weeks card, over at C4E we have another sketch for you, got to say this one challenged the old grey matter somewhat, not sure I have done it justice to be honest!!!!

There is also an additional theme this week which is 'Holiday' I thought my new Beach Tilda & Bathing ring would be perfect!!! I used the masking technique to sit Tilda on her ring, Isn't she cute??? Stampeezee have both items in stock here at the moment

The papers are Imaginisce getting hotter, need water & a shore thing sun ripe stripe, the border punch is Martha Stewart & the sentiment is by Unity Stamps - Mix up of cuteness collection, all these items are available at Stampeezee. The flourishes are Inkadinkado stamped in SU Night of Navy & glittered with stickles

Tilda was coloured in with Promarkers & highlighted with a white pen, I distressed all the edges of the elements with SU Pixie pink ink so I am also entering this card into Just Magnolia & Simon Says Stamp, both challenges are to include distressing on your card.

Pop over to the C4E blog to see that fab inspiration on offer, Andie & Suzette have their first DT cards to show you and you won't be dissapointed, big welcome to you both girls.

Thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.
