It's sketch time at Moving Along with the Times

Hi everybody

My apologies that this is so late - I lost my internet last night, and it is now back.

This week at  Moving Along with the Times  it is Hazel's turn to host, and we have a brilliant sketch to follow.  And as Hazel says - You can bend it stretch it or turn it round.  Just so long as its still recognisable.

Our Sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.  The Winner will receive a $10.00 Voucher to use in their store.  They have a fabulous range of stamps and digital papers.

So on to my card.  I have used Garden Fantasy Digital Stamp Silhouette.  I printed on to a blue background, and then brushed some distress ink over it.  I have used used stickles on the wings, and some glittery gems.  My background paper is from Sweete Shoppe, as is the patterned green scraps on the ovals.  To fnish a swirl from a Marianne die, and a sentiment from Craftwork cards.

Please pop over to the  MAWTT challenge blog for all the details and to check out the fabulous DT makes for your inspiration.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything goes
Cupcake Crafts - In the garden
Creative Belli - Something Beginning With S - Silhouette
Flutterby Wednesday - Open
Sir Stampalot - Magical Worlds
Stamps R Us - Going Digital
