Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - Bugaboo

Soooo, Wednesday has rolled around again, and this week that means that it is time for my return to the design team for the challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, and this week we are sponsored by (drum roll please):

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can findBugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join theBugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

A few changes have been made while I have been away trying to catch up with life, but one think that hasn't changed -we have an amazing sketch for you to create with this week.

I found this sketch really easy to use and I made my card using an image from Bugaboo that I have had for a while, but as I have been so busy recently I had not had chance to play with it.  I have a few images like these, but I am on a mission now to try and get them made, especially as I will be doing regular(ish) craft fairs this year.

Anyway, I coloured my image using promarkers and stitched the image onto some pink card stock.  I do still love the effect of stitching on cards, and even though I fall over my sewing machine on a regular basis, I often forget to use it.  However, something about this card drew me to it.  I also stitched the other layers.

My patterned papers were from a Dovecraft paper pack on my stash.  I stitched these onto dark pink card stock.  I then wrapped this panel with pink dotty ribbon and attached the image panel over the top.

To embellish the card, I used some buttons from my stash on the left-hand side and some glittery 'mum' letters along the top of the image.

Just to finish, I added glittery dots in three corners and a bronzey coloured ribbon in the bottom right hand side of the image, basically because I liked the colour.

All was attached to a white blank.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
