Sketch Saturday #88: Whimsy Summer Day Emma

Happy Saturday!

Today over at Sketch Saturday we have another wonderful sketch by Jo, and this week we are being sponsored by one of my fave online craft shops, The Craft Barn:

I decided to use my Whimsy Stamps Summer Day Emma stamp - isn't she gorgeous?  Sorry for the orangey piccies, but try as I might I couldn't edit this photo to represent how it looks in real life (it's supposed to be a coral pink)... but you get the idea!

Do pop along to Sketch Saturday and have a look at my wonderful team-mates' fabulous cards - you won't be disappointed!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. A Spoon full of Sugar ... Challenge 88 Freestyle : Anything you like!
2. Creative Card Crew ... Challenge 43 Punch It : I've used - MS Butterfly punch (new!), SU Scallop border punch, Woodware Daisy punches, Woodware corner rounder punch
3. Copic Colour Challenge ... Challenge 49 - E00 E33 R02 : I used E00 for her skin and E33 for her hair, and R02 for her blush.
4. Creative Inspirations ... Challenge 45 Feminine : To make something feminine!
5. Quixotic Challenges ... Challenge 11 Flutter By : Incorporate butterflies - I've added a punched out butterfly, plus I have butterflies on my image!
6. Cute Card Thursday ... Challenge 97 Blooming Gorgeous : To include flowers - my stamp and paper include flowers, plus I have added some handmade daisies!
7. PaperPlay Challenges ... Week 4 Pink, White & Green : Even though my pink looks very 'coral', I have used pink, white and green for this card!
8. Sweet Stampin Challenge ... Challenge 11 Scallops : I've used my SU Scallop border punch, plus my scalloped circle nesties!

Sorry this is short, but things are rather hectic here at the moment!

Thanks for popping by and have a great weekend!
