JCBC Week #25 --- Simone's sketch

Our new challenge at Just Christmas and Birthday Cards is to follow a sketch made by Simone. It is a great sketch which provided me with a few confused moments. You know my cards are never too elaborate and for Simone's sketch I had to think much more than I'm used to. :D
But Thank You! Simone for making me think outside my (tight) box.

Here's the sketch:

And this is my card...



The image is a stamp print I have from Karin (thank you!), coloured with watercolour pencils and 'dotted' with white Sakura glaze.
The sentiment stamp is from a See D's Christmas set.
Green DPs are a download from my
friend Tracey (Fred She Said).
Other DPs are a free download from Shabby Princess - some really nice digi-papers and scrapbook kits in there.
Flower, ribbon and brad - from stash.

I couldn't make a birthday card too but if I manage to produce one in the next few days I will update this post. :)

Please check out our JCBC Challenge Blog to see all the DT's creations and, why not, to enter the challenge. This week's prize is a cute Alota Rubber stamp.

Thanks for looking and I wish you all a very fine week ahead.
