Cute Card Thursday!

Good morning everyone! I am actually posting on Thursday of this week. I wish I could post every day, but unfortunately I don't have time to make that many cards on a regular basis.

It just happens that this week, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is sponsoring the Cute Card Sketch over at Cute Card Thursday. If you enter, you can win some Kraftin' Kimmie stamps.

For my card, I used Nerissa from the June Release over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I hadn't inked up this mermaid yet, so it was great to have an excuse to use her. I think she is so adorable, she is fun to colour. I coloured her using my Copics of course, then matted her on some Regal Rose. I used my 'A Day at the Beach' patterned papers, I'm using them a lot right now as they are so perfect for the mermaids and also for Miles the Mouse, who was also released along with the mermaids. The sketch was so great to use, I matted the two horizontal strips on Regal Rose and the vertical wide piece on Pumpkin Pie. I set all that on some blue patterned paper, then matted it on some more Pumpkin Pie, then onto a card base of Baja Blue. I added one of the sentiments from the Kraftin' Kimmie Mermaid Sentiments, then added some yummy Prima Caboodles. Oh, and I also put some Stardust Stickles on her tail.

So that's it, I would like to find time for more of these sketch challenges, they are great fun.

See you again soon,
