Here's the sketch for this week...

This is a great sketch for just about any of the images!  I saw the big circle at the bottom of the sketch and knew I wanted to turn it into a shaker!

I stamped the sweet scene from What's Mew on a panel of white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  

I used some pattern paper with a tree print for the cover of my card. The little girl is looking out her window to a kitty standing on a tree branch. This is like a peek through the trees into her window. The Scallop Circle die from Pretty Pink Posh makes the perfect frame for the shaker.

The sketch has a line that goes through the circle.  I moved it up a bit so the sentiment doesn't slash through the image.  I used a stitched border from Pretty Pink Posh Borders 2 set to stamp the sentiment, and one from the Borders 4 set to add the bitty scallops in blue under the white sentiment. 
I filled the shaker with iridescent mini sequins (4mm) in Peridot Mist and Sunshine Glow and some Silver Shimmer Seed Beads, and adorned the tree branches with little Summer Flower Sequins all from Pretty Pink Posh.

Need a little more inspiration? Our guestie this month is Michele Ferguson from I Card Everyone!  And of course the Challenge design team has some eye candy too! 

I hope you'll join us!  You can always find the challenge easy by clicking on "our latest sketch" in the right hand column of the Sugar Pea Designs Blog.

Have a great day!
