Friday Sketchers #12

...is a sketch by Jacqueline. I had a time with this one and finally decided to go with funny as my friend who is receiving this, has gotten a ton of cute lately!! It is her b-day coming up and I haven't used these sets in along time! They are by Crafty Secrets. As you can see I probably over did it with the sparkle but I wanted to make it over the top to represent the "Queen" part of the card.
The tall candles are a cuttlebug folder (Yeah I FINALLY got mine!!) and because of the strip in the middle I got to elongate them to fit the full panel!! The ribbon covers where I put the 2 pieces of paper together to make the longer candle.
I went with all this blue because that is her favorite color and I love this paper!!

Paper: October Afternoon, CTMH cardstock
Ink: Black Staz-on
Accessories: Ribbon ~ Micheals, Stickles & Dew drops ~ Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps


Well thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!!
