Friday Sketchers Challenge

Good November 1st Saturday morning to you! And do we all have tummy aches from eating too much Halloween candy last night? Hmmmm...I'm not going to comment for myself but suffice to say we had a nice evening. Oh...and to those who asked me, No! Paul didn't photograph me in my Elphaba costume, however one of the moms taking her children around did snap a shot as I gave candy to her little children.

On with today's post. This is a day of firsts for me. This is the first time I particpated in a FRIDAY SKETCHERS challenge. This is an international group of papercrafters/cardmakers and I had such fun working with Friday's new sketch challenge. Here is my card using their layout sketch:

This is also the first time I've used a Magnolia stamp. This little girl is darling and such fun to color with my prismacolor pencils. I added frosted Stickles glitter to her wings and to her slip that is showing. The centers of her flower garland jumprope have tiny blue crystals and the purple paper flowers in the corners have crystal centers as well.

Another first for me was to make a square card. I loved it! I haven't made square cards before. This one measures 5" X 5". It worked perfectly for the sketch layout. Here is the Friday Sketchers number 26 layout:

My little magnolia girl is mounted on pop-dots for a bit more dimension.

If you enjoy working with sketch challenges and would enjoy participating with paper artists from all around the globe I encourage you to check out the FRIDAY SKETCHERS CHALLENGE group by clicking on the group name I have highlighted.

Happy Saturday! Happy November 1st (All Saints Day. And Happy Autumn weekend.
