Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #134: A Magical Day

Tuesday, February 21, 2012



Hello Friends, and Happy Tuesday! You are going to love the sketch this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Kathy designed a square card with diagonals--FUN! And, if you haven't played along with us at TMS before, now's the time to get started. Our sponsor this week is Pixie Dust Studio, and you should check out the digi stamps there. Too, too cute!!!








I used Lily Pad's Virginia's View Challenge #2 as my inspiration for the colors and part of the design. I couldn't resist when I saw all those dots. Liquid Pearls and Stickles are two of my best friends lately! :)
The image is a Pixie Dust Studio digital stamp called Laurel Wings. Isn't she sweet? I had such fun coloring her with my Copics and adding Stickles to her wings and flowers. And, take a look at all those dots!!!


The inside is simple, but still feminine: 

So, will you play along with us this week? I hope so. You have until Sunday at 8PM EST to link your creation. The rest of the design team has lots more inspiration for you to feast your eyes on at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog, and all the details for the challenge are there, too. I can't wait to see your project! Thanks for stopping by!
