You are my nightlight...........

What is going on with blogger today? This morning, I finished off my Sunday Sketch and Stamp post and although I'd clearly asked for it to publish at 10.00am, it was posted straight away - at about 8.30am, even though it said 'posted at 10am' at the bottom!!?? Whereas this post, which I'd also scheduled, I've just had a look at and it's not been posted at all!?!? Is anyone else having any problems? Anyway, enough moaning, let's get on with it!!
Today there's a new challenge over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and I'm very excited cos it's my sketch this week!! I love seeing how people interpret a sketch that I've come up with. Here's my version:
I've used (another!) one of those fabulous Simply Sassy girls (sorry, I know you're probably gonna start getting sick of them, I just love them so!!!!!), which I've watercoloured with distress inks. I've also used an inkadinkado sentiment stamp, which when I saw, thought would be perfect with this image. I've stamped all round the edges with a Tim Holtz stamp and then distressed all the edges with vintage photo distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey Capella. I've made the brown flowers using cream prima e-line flowers, which I coloured with VP DI and then put together using this youtube video, the cream ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts (Asters), I then sprayed them all with Ranger Perfect Pearl Mist. And I've added pearls from my stash.
I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp 'Anything Goes' challenge and Little Miss Muffet's challenge #4, which is to use Designer Papers.
I really hope you like my card, please do leave me a comment and let me know what you think, I appreciate each and every one!! And do hop over and check out what the rest of the talented DT girlies have done with my sketch. Most importantly, please join in with the challenge yourselves, so that I can see what you do with it!! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, I'm off to take the dog for a walk across the heath! TTFN lovelies......x
