Sketch Saturday and All That Scraps

Hello lovely ladies!!
A quick post from me this morning. I'm running very late with my Sketch Saturday card but at least I did it right :). Here is Jo's brilliant sketch for this week: And here is my not so brilliant take on it:

See the difference? I was planning to do the card just as the sketch only when I had attached everything together I noticed that I had done the punched piece vertical and the piece with the sentiment (flowers for me) and the brads horizontal. But never mind, you can always turn the sketches so I don't think it's a big problem and it looks fine this way too. Can't go wrong with that cute Gretel from the C.C. Designs Swiss Pixies can you? Don't forget you have until tomorrow morning to win her and some other goodies in my Blog Candy! I so love colouring her and her little sister! The design papers, cardstock and embellies I used are from the Card-Art card kit and add on from June. The papers are Doodlebug and I LOVE Doodlebug! Here is a close up of Gretel:

Colouring as always with my Derwent Watercolour Pencils, Copics and 3D and this time some Diamant Stickles on her wings.
I hope you like my card! Don't forget to check out the blogs of my fellow Design Team members (links on the right) and this weeks very talented guest designer, a fellow Dutchie: Leonie. There is also a prize up for grabs this week, a coupon to spend at Simons Says stamps so don't forget to check out the Sketch Saturday blog for details and to join in of course!!
Have a great Saturday everybody!!
