Sketch Saturday #302

Good morning!  Happy Saturday from Dallas, Texas!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  We haven't gotten started yet, but I know it's going to be fun weekend of coloring!  I am here with my DT post for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  I have pre-scheduled it, so hopefully you are seeing it on time.  Our sponsor this week is Deedee's Digis, who are offering the winner 3 digis of their choice.

Here is the fabulous sketch for this week from Cathy:

Here is my card:

As I often do, I flipped the sketch to fit my image.  My card base and mats are SU Cranberry Crisp and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Forever Fall 6x6 pad.  The gorgeous image is Toadstool Fascination by ching chou kuik for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I printed the digi on Hammermill Digital Cover Stock and colored it with my Copics.  I added Aqua Stickles to the piece in her hair and Ice White Pearl Pen accents at the top of her dress and around in her hair.  The sentiment is from A Piece of Heart. Sharon generously shared it as a freebie here.  A simple ribbon bow 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 gorgeous creations from the rest of the Saturday Girls and our March Guest Designer, Melissa.  We hope you will play along!
