Guylou's Sketch Challenge

I think if I had to pick a type of challenge I favor most, hands down - it has to be sketch challenges.  I color, pick out papers, embellies (the easy parts, lol)  and then I get to have someone put all the puzzle pieces together :) 

Guylou's Inimitability is hosting a sketch challenge (yay!!) and one of her DT's, Carmen, has provided an awesome sketch with lots of layers - which I love!  Here is the sketch :
And here is my take on the sketch using Guylous' image, Jessica:

Medium:  Artist Loft Watercolor Pencils
Image:  Jessica by Guylou's Inimitability
Sentiment:  TLC
Digi Papers:  Happy Go Lucky by Shabby Princess
Bo Bunny Candy Jewels in Chocolate
Distress ink by Tim Holtz in Vintage Photo

  1. Awww, this is so cute, hon! I love the kraft paper!

  2. I like this mix of patterns! Great card. I'm also a huge fan of sketch challenges. There's so many of them out there now and I get a kick out of finding just the right one for the image I want to use.

  3. Fantabulous!!!! Love the beautiful pp and the colours!! You did marvelous with the sketch!!

  4. Suuuuwwwweeet card Sara! The colors and patterns that you went with are fabulous! And of course I love Jessica...she such a cute image and you have colored her wonderfully! Is the color of the base of the card a sage green? It looks like it (and I adore that color), but sometimes it's hard to tell with pictures and such. Great take on the sketch.
