Stamptacular Sketch

Good Morning everyone, we have a snow threat hanging over us in Kent Uk at the moment, I hope it's not too much, we will be cut off totally if it;s heavy, So far it's held off, so fingers crossed we escape lightly,

It's A lovely Sketch this week over at Stamptacular I really enjoyed  this sketch, I do sometimes struggle, I colour my image then sit and stare at it, wondering how it would look best, So when it's sketch time I just crack on and build it all up, I get these ones done in record time,

We are sponsored by bugaboo stamps and marianne design this week, two great prizes,

On with my card I have used silver lining from Saturated Canary

I just love this image, she looks like one of my girls, who repeatedly break glasses and plates in the kitchen, then just stand there waiting for you to clear it up !! 
She is coloured with my lovely copics, I'm going to try distress markers on one of these images soon, not sure how it will turn out as it will be printer ink, anyone have any suggestions, Ive heard to print in economy mode, and leave it 24 hours before colouring, anything else?

The papers are from the Craft Barn Sale on 27th December last year, wow what a sale!
The flowers are from WOC the ribbon from range, the die is a doo hickey, I use this die so much,  the edging on the white card is done with a Martha Stewart Punch,

My challenges this week are:

Saturated Canary - Inspired by a sing - Annie Lennox Walking on Broken Glass
cr84fn color challenge - Colour challenge
colour me creative - soft pastels
our creative corner 6 - shabby chic

Thank you for looking enjoy the rest of your Sunday
