Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge 55 Shirley's 2 Girls

Hello All! This is my first post as a new member of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday DT. I am so excited to be part of this fun group! Our sponsor this week is Shirley's 2 Girls. The image that I used is called "Mother Knows Best".This week, the winner of this challenge will win a $10 Gift Certificate! Head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to play along. I used my Sweetberry Ink Dye Pads to color this image. I used the following colors: Juneberry, pansy, admiral, amber, velvet, aspen, yam, raven, ivy, maraschino, and blackberry. I also used Create-A-Finish: Shading Cake Kit peach color. The paper came from DCWV The Shimmer Stack and The Paper Studio All Seasons Paper Pack. The purple ribbon came from Jo-Ann's and the yellow was found in a 6-pack at Target in the $1 bin. The flower is by Heidi Grace Designs and the brad came from Hobby Lobby. I hope that you all have fun with this challenge. I can't wait to see all your creations!

  15. Erika, until I got to see your cards in real life did I realize how beautiful they are. The camera pictures do not do them justice at all. What gorgeous coloring and beautiful cards you have created..I only wish everyone else could see them for real.
