S&S Sketch Challenge #23

I used a freebie digi image I found on the Stars & Stamps blog for this card. The sketch is from this weeks S&S#23 challenge. I colored the image with markers, glitter pens, and a gold deco pen, and used a Nestability to cut the circles out. The sentiment is computer generated and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the bottom panel. I used 3 different ribbons for the vertical panel, and the red DP is by SU! I also dotted the scallops with a white gel pen. This will be going in my next box of cards to OWH which I hope to have filled real soon!
Thanks for stopping by :)

This card turned out great. The three ribbons are a nice touch and I thought I recognized that embossing folder.

Adorable card! What a great idea to combine the digi challenge and sketch at the same time. I may have to start trying that myself.
