Sketch challenge time over at A Spoonful of Sugar!

(Please scroll down for my Totally Ladybug Tuesday DT card)

I always love a sketch challenge to get a dose of inspiration, don't you?  This week A Spoonful of Sugar has a brilliant sketch which I had a ball with!

I flipped the sketch on its side and I used another of those lovely Simply Sassy images called Pillow Talk from Sugar Nellie.  I adore these little ladies!  Steve's not that keen on them - says they looks like they haven't taken their mascara off properly, lol!!!  But I don't care - it's not like I give him my cards anyway!

The other DT makes are gorgeous!  You can see them all here.

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye Stella & Rose Hattie paper pack
Stamps: Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Pillow Talk, Stamping Bella sentiment
Mediums: watercolouring with Distress Inks
Accents: Stampin' Up ribbon
Tools: Nestabilities dies

Back in the 60's (yes I'm that old) there was an artist drawing something similar, but I can't recall (yes I'm old) the name. Anyway, I love the card and the colors you chose. Really pretty.
