Sketch and Stash Challenge......

Hi... hoping everyone is well??
Feels like I've completely lost touch with the bloggy world...Its been a while since I've done any hopping!!
I'm still hoping to get round you all over the next couple of days to see what you've been up to....

I'm entering this card into the Sketch and stash Challenge...... I know what you are thinking!!! I don't normally enter challenges using my own stamps!!!
well.....
I figured what the heck!! whats the worst that can happen??
I've used Sharing Sherbet -Heartstrings I've watercoloured her... and added some glitter touches, but you can't see them on the photo. Can you believe this is the first time I've inked her up?? I used a printed image when I used her on the blog candy.... so she is my something new... and ever so slighty neglected...:(


I have used 'artistic licence' a little bit when following the sketch.... I hope I'm forgiven girls??...
The papers are basic grey Eva... and are all scrap bits....
The ribbon is making memories, and the charm is from a fab friend.... you know who you are ;)
I'm not entirely sure about this card.... I wanted to try something a bit 'radical' its for my little sister, and I wanted it to be vibrant and funky..... I think I might have made it a bit too busy though....
still...I don't have my mojo back yet so thats my excuse... the inside is decorated as well, but I forgot to take a piccy, and I can't be bothered now.... lol!!

Thanks for looking, will hopefully be sharing again tomorrow.... I know....don't feint!!!

Hugs...
