Quirky Challenge: It's My Sketch!

Yep, it's my turn this time round to set the challenge over on Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog. This fortnight we'd love you to join us in our Crafty Quirkiness and use a sketch.
It's nice and easy, so we look forward to seeing Hundreds of entries!! (or I'll sulk and stamp my foot)
We'd love to see anything crafty, a card, scrapbook page, tag, fat page, altered art, ATC, or even Inchies, if you think you can!

Quirky Crafts Sketch
Sunday 7th Nov- Saturday 2oth
See, told you it was easy! Feel free to rotate the sketch, add bits, invert it or use it in any way you wish, fold it in a cone and put chips in it if you like, just so long as we can still see the sketch within your work!
We're also looking for some new DT members. Someone who has a blog, who can make a card/scrapbook page or anything crafty, every two weeks and take a reasonable picture, is really all you have to be able to do! Easy! (We don't do hard coz we can't!) If you don't think you could manage every two weeks but would still like to give it a go, why not think about becoming a Guess Designer. All you have to do, is join in this sketch challenge (as many times as you wish) and add either DT or GDT to your name in MR Linky or send the Quirky Team an email and we'll get back to you! Simples! Of course, sometimes we have sponsors for our challenges and they send us their goodies to use, obviously you'll also be sent the same goodies to use too!

That's enough blurb! Here's my card.
First I took a square card a chopped about an inch off it. Covered it first in the blue side of Forever Friends 'Gift Wrapped' A4 Double-sided Cardstock (240gsm) and then the dotty side and inked the edges. Then I did the same thing with the smaller rectangle, only this time, used the stripes, added white brads and fixed on with 3D foam pads and silicone glue. Both the circles were cut from Woodware Punches.
I then stamped and cut out the little 'Padded Paws', Animal Ark (by DoCrafts) clear stamp image and coloured it with ProMakers and also 3D-ed the balloon. At one time thought about doing a spot of paper piecing with the balloon, but once again, changed my mind.
I added Stickles Glitter in Baby Blue, the flowers are from my stash and those tiny gems (I added three) are by Anita's, using a Quickie Glue pen to fix them on.
That's it! Click on the pictures to make them larger as I've scribbled on some of them. I had a suddenly rush of madness and put mock stitching all around the card with a blue gel pen, but....wasn't sure about. But I've ended putting them both on here... what d'you think? (Click the pictures to make them larger) The inside I've left plain with a white scalloped circle to one side ready to write in.
If you fancy having a go at this challenge but haven't got a blog why not email us a picture and we'll add it to the challenge for you! That's it from me, catch you all later! Thanks for stopping by.
