Happy Sailors: Critter Sketch Challenge #18

I'm very excited that this week is my first official post as a new member of Critter Sketch Challenge Blog!  I did a stint as a guest designer last month and put my name in the hat for the Design Team this time around.  I was thrilled that Melanie asked me and have had a great time getting to know the girls.


This week Melanie gave us a sketch to work with-and an added challenge to use ribbon somewhere on the card.  I loved this sketch (I did rotate mine) and so I picked this cute image from Softpencil digital designs, who is our sponsor this month, to work with.  I really love cute little images like this and they were fun to color!  The stamp seemed like it was just meant for this sketch and I kept it really simple.


Make sure to check out the other Design Team members creations this week to see how they used this sketch on their creations, I can't wait to see what they did!


Card details:
Stamps: Happy Sailors digital by Softpencil, Sentiment from Ahoy Matey from CHF
Cardstock: Confetti White, Real Red, Night of Navy, retired designer paper
Inks: Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Ribbon punch, Enchanted Evening Twill ribbon from PTI
