Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Milk'n'Coffee

Sooooo, its Wednesday morning, and once again it is time for another amazing sketch challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, and this week the sketch is:

And here is my offering for this week:

The image comes from our lovely sponsor Milk N Coffee, who are rapidly becoming one of my favourite digi suppliers.  Keep your eyes peeled on the blog for more images from them in the very near future.

This is a card I made when I was feeling a bit down in the dumps, so I decided to use some bright colours to cheer me up a bit.

The image is coloured with promarkers and I coloured the image to look a bit like my eldest niece, Georgia (which basically meant giving her brown hair), but I so often seem to do blondes, which end up looking like my youngest niece, Evie, also known as 'Miss Narky Knickers' according to my sister today.  No idea what she has done wrong, other than be her usual bossy self.  She was the quiet one before she started school in September, but that has definitely all changed.
Anyway, I'm digressing again aren't I?

I followed the colours in my image through to my papers and ribbon.  The flowery papers are all from a Boofle paper pack and the yellow paper is just some from my stash and I can't remember for the life of me where I got it from. 

The ribbon is from MeiFlower and I actually won this on a twitter competition back in the summer and have been waiting for a card to use it on ever since.  I also made a bow from the ribbon, to match the bow on the image.

Finally, the little yellow gems are from my stash.

I made this a while ago, as I like to be ahead, and have used it as a thank you card from the wedding and Christmas.

Happy Crafting!
