Sketch Saturday #295

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  We've got a busy day planned and are hoping that the weather doesn't interfere like during the past week!  Anyway, I am here with my DT card for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  We are sponsored this time by A Day For Daisies who are offering a $12 GC to the lucky winner.

Here is the fab sketch created by Cathy:
Here is my take on the sketch:

My card base and mats are SU Cranberry Crisp and the patterned papers are from the Carta Bella Beautiful Moments 6x6 pad.  The image is Pearls in My Hair from A Day for Daisies.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added a bunch of Cream Pearl Pen accents to her hair.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A simple sheer bow and a few pearls finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Sketch Saturday blog and check out the fantastic creations from the rest of the Saturday Girls!  We hope you will find time to play along!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
A Day For Daisies Challenge #88 (pink and red; both colors are in the patterned paper)
Incy Wincy Challenge (ribbon and pearls)

Have a great day and I'll be back shortly with my Little Miss Muffet Super Saturday post.
