Sunday Sketch & Stamp 6: HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLARE!

This is my DT card for today's Sunday Sketch & Stamp's Challenge #6, which is a fabulous sketch by the super-talented Barb.

Today is also a very special day for my Sunday Sketch & Stamp DT sistah, Clare, as it's her birthday!!! When I found out that Clare's birthday was on the very day of our 6th challenge, I emailed the rest of the DT (in secret!) to let them know and to suggest that maybe we could make our DT cards actual birthday cards for Clare!!! So I hope you were surprised Clare!!!

wishing you a fan-tab-u-lous day!!

So onto the card (which should be safely in Clare's inky hands by now!). Crafts 4 Eternity are our sponsors for this challenge and have kindly donated 4 digi stamps for the challenge prize. The DT were lucky enough to be given all 4 digi stamps to play with for this challenge, and the one I chose was in 'landscape' rather than 'portrait' so I rotated Barb's fantastic sketch 90 degrees to the left and then used it in its mirror-image:

The digi image I chose is called 'Gotch Ya!' and was originally a 'Mister' Frog before I got my hands on it! LOL! I erased the collar and tie, and then once I'd printed and coloured the image, I hand-drew some lips and eyelashes.... and voila....'Mrs Frog' was born:

A bit of glitter on her lips and the wings of that 'tasty' fly and she was done!

We'd love you to play along with us at Sunday Sketch & Stamp, so why don't you 'hop' on over now (...hee hee, sorry, couldn't resist!!) and check out the rest of the DT's creations.

Hope you all have a FAB week!

Hugs, Sem xx
