Paper Sundaes - Sketch Challenge!

Happy Sundae!

Our challenge this week at Paper Sundaes is a sketch and here is the card I came up with. I just love a great sketch! This cutie - "Rainy Cythia" is from The Stamping Boutique - this week's sponsor.
She was just "begging" to be colored in bright cheery colors, so I pulled out my "Lime Rickey" paper pack from Basic Grey and got to work with my copics.

My baby brother is getting married in June. The Jack & Jill is this weekend as well as a Bridal shower. I am missing it since my family is in Southern Ontario and I'm up North, so this is the card that I made to send down. I thought the image was appropriate since the card is for a Bridal shower.

I was able to incorporate a challenge here since the theme this week at Raise the Bar is Three's Company - use three of anything. I have used three different patterned papers here.

And last but certainly not least -I was preparing to print my image a couple of days ago when my son got on the computer and ended up printing a full page sized image. No worries - images do not get wasted around here. Danderella's girls were over and the image was watercolored beautifully minutes later! I just had to share!
Wishing you all a Happy Sundae!
Hope you can play along!
Shanna :)
What I used:
stamps: Rainy Cynthia Digi from The Stamping Boutique, SU sentiment
papers: Basic Grey "Lime Rickey", CTMH outdoor denim
embellishments: Basic Grey stickers & buttons, embroidery floss, Me & My big Ideas icons, machine stitching
