DDC #2 ~ Sketch it!!

This week over at Double Dutch they have a fabulous sketch to follow! It really appealed to me so I had to give it a shot!! I have had the card sitting here since Monday night and finally colored it in. Does anyone else dread that part? I always feel I am going to ruin it! It takes me forever to just color it in!!
I found some Glimmer Mist today and just had to try it out. They didn't have much of a selection so I got Tiger Lily ~ it is the orangy color on my ticket, flowers and scarf. I think I need more practice with it then I have a feeling I will love this stuff!! I just need different colors! I also picked up some more mini-pearls in a orangy gold and pink. So I threw some on here as well!!

Paper: Cosmo Cricket ~ Hey Sugar
Inks: Distressed inks, Jet Black Archival
Accessories: Brads ~ MM, Mini-pearls ~ Kaiser Crafts, Ribbon ~ Walmart, Flowers ~ Martha Stewart hydrangea punch
Stamps: Magnolia, ticket ~ Inkadinkado, Sentiment ~ PTI

Hopefully I find more time tomorrow for catching up on challenges. It is pathetic that I only got an image colored in the past 2 days!! Hope everyone else is having a better week!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday!!

Oh and everyone don't forget about all the blog candy going on out there:

Marlene has some sweet stuff (a couple of Hanglars + more)for a b-day candy and 145000 hits! That is crazy but I believe it!!
Fran has an adorable Whiff of Joy stamp and some other embellies on her blog!
Donalda also has a cute image from Whiff of Joy for blog candy.
Lim has a huge collection of stamped images, the popular Martha Stewart Doily punch and a mix of other stuff up for grabs.....
And finally Jeanette is giving away a stash of images and a new Magnolia stamp for her blog candy! She has reached 10,000 hits.

Remember while you are out scoping these blogs for the candy make sure to browse the creations as well as all these ladies are extremely talented and are sure to inspire you!!
