Tilda does Sketch Saturday

Here's my entry for this weeks fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday which I turned on it's side. I used this adorable Tilda image I received in an image swap with Lil Paper Pixie herself, the lovely & hugely talented Sarah. Go see her blog here to see her marvellous creations. I coloured her with my pencils, but could not watercolour it as the paper goes wrinkly! I think I should have chosen some lighter DPs though as the image looks a bit subdued against these gorgeous My Minds Eye papers I got from Stampeezee. I'm afraid I won't be able to send this to anyone as the beads are a bit weighty & it would cost me a fortune, LOL! I got the idea for the folded flower out of this months Scrapbook Inspirations. Though I would say, if you are going to try it, make you use a long enough strip of paper to go full circle. I had a couple of false starts! Also, the more even the folds, the neater the outcome. I quite like it, so expect to see more on future cards!
Hope you are all having a great weekend. We went out for a meal at lunch time & I am feeling very roly poly just now! I have been to the gym a couple of times this week, but I have just undone all my hard work. Oh well, I'll start again tomorrow!
Big love to you all!
