Sketch Saturday #342

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  After taking a little time off over the holidays, my blog is going to be hopping today!  First off, I am here with my DT card for this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.  It's our first challenge of the new year and we are super excited about the upcoming sketches and sponsors!  This week, we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, who are offering the lucky winner 7 digis of their choice from the Bugaboo Stamps shop.

Here is this week's sketch, designed by Alex:
And here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Green Apple and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Plum Seed collection.  The sweet image is Pretty Molly from Art by Mi Ran.  I colored her with my Copics, of course.  I decided to keep it simple and not add any embellishments or even a sentiment.  I will add one later when I know to whom I'll be sending it.

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 fabulous creations from the rest of the Saturday Girls and our January Guest Designer, Kerrie!  We hope you will play along!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Have a great day and I will be back shortly with a very special Make it Crafty DT post!
