Cute Card Thursday Sketch

Got round to making a card (finally) for the latest challenge at Cute Card Thursday, which is a sketch by the very talented Katharina. Here's my take on it:

This is one of half a dozen commissioned cards for a friend - her daughters and some of their friends are taking part in a dance show at the end of the month. I'm making life easier for myself and am only doing three designs, so two of each. I'll show the other ones once their finished off.
I've used a new Sugar Nellie stamp and coloured it in with water colours, my nestabilities, a computer printed sentiment, gingham paper which I've had for ages, some ribbon and a few gems.

Also, I've been making this set of cards over the last week, all based on the same idea, with computer printed sentiments in the bottom right hand corner. I used mainly DCWV cardstock and embossed it with Cuttlebug folders, and then embellished with toning flowers, ribbon, brads etc. from stash. I really like all the colours and how the cards look together, but they are also nice individually. And so simple! Hope people at the craft fair will like them, too :)

Busy week this week with school events, hubby going to London and final preparations for the fair, and then as a treat after the fair, a trip to Artstamps Scotland in Edinburgh on Saturday - to spend any hard-earned pennies! Thanks for stopping by!
