A Krafty Sketch For You To Try!

Morning all!!  Happy Saturday!  It is the first Saturday in March and that means it's time for a new Sketch For You To Try.  This month we are being sponsored by Amber Ink.  They have some super cute and clever images - go check them out!! 

I also have a bit of other news to share - I am incredibly honoured to be guest designing for Kraftin' Kimmie stamps this month!  And this week's challenge over on the Kraftin' Kimmie challenge blog is to use twine or floss on your card.  So I've combined both the sketch challenge and the twine challenge for today's card!  

Here I've used Arianna and paired her with some October Afternoon Seaside papers as well as a piece of Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather thrown in there too.  I rotated the sketch so that it worked a bit better for me.  I did some stitching, added some baby braddies and of course divine TWINE and a felt star and button.  I did have to cut off one of Arianna's seahorses to make the image fit my card a bit better - but I think it still works. 

Here you can see where I glittered her up!  I used some glitzy glitter - clear for her body and some platinum coloured glitter on her tail.  I went with a bit of an Ariel colour theme for my mermaid, since we just returned from Disney not too long ago.

Here's the sketch for you!

Here are all the details:
1. The SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY {SFYTT} will be posted on the first Saturday of each month on at 8am EST and will stay open to participants until the last day of the month, unless otherwise noted.
2. This is for fun! Interpret the sketch as you wish and embellish as desired. There are no vendor restrictions, but we would love to see you use the sponsor’s stamps!
3. Each month we will have a Designer of the Month that will be chosen from past month’s participants.
4. Come and play with us on each and every sketch! On Christmas Day 2011 a prize package worth over $200 will be given away to one very lucky and loyal SFYTT stamper that participates in EVERY sketch for the year.
5. To be eligible for the prize package, you must complete ALL of the sketches by each of the deadlines AND link your creation to the link system on that month’s sketch post (the first Saturday of the month). Everyone except for SFYTT Sisters are eligible for the prize package, including Designer of the Month and international players.
6. When posting your sketch creation on your blog, please post the sketch and link back to the sketch post on When posting to online galleries, please use the keyword “SFYTT.”

Now go check out what pure beauty my sketch sisters have created for you!
