Sketch time

Hello lovely people,

This is scheduled to post on the last day of my skiing holiday so I hope I have had a wonderful and most importantly, injury free, holiday!

It's time for a new challenge at All Dressed Up and this time we have this fabulous sketch for you to work with;

I have used the adorable I Love My Puppy image and just played around slightly with the sketch to add in a fishtail (of course!) and turn the bottom panel into some twine with the tag sentiment.

I think this is a really happy image and this inspired me to use some lovely bright colours.  I also had a go at adding some tufts of grass into my usual dotty ground and I am so happy with the end result :-)

Card recipe;
Image: I Love My Puppy
DP: My Girl - American Crafts
Sentiment: Sentiment tags - LOTV
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Twine: Ivory button twine - The Ribbon Girl
