Sunday Sketch & Stamp 7: Happy Birthday SIS!

Click to enlarge image Happy Sunday, everyone!

I'd like to show you my DT card for Sunday Sketch and Stamp. Today marks the beginning of challenge 7, which is a great sketch by my fellow SS&S DT member, Ger.

Remember that the challenges over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp run for 2 weeks, so there's plenty of time to get your entries in! If you enter this fortnight's challenge, you could win a brand new Wild Rose Studio stamp entitled "Best Friends" - which is the image I've used for my card!

It's my little sister's birthday today (well, she's not little anymore, but she is 4 years younger than me!), and so I made this card for her. I thought the stamp fitted perfectly - it's supposed to be me on the left (dark blonde and 3" taller) and my sister on the right (used to be white blonde when she was very young):

I've glittered up 'our' shoes, necklaces and the 3 starbursts using my Sakura Glitter Clear Gel pen.... although you can't see it particularly well!I'm going to enter this card into this week's Creative Inspirations challenge 17, which is "Stitching" (real or faux).

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may have - I LOVE reading them!

TTFN! Hugs, Sem xx
