Here is Karina's fantastic sketch ...It's gorgeous and fun to play with and such a cute theme 
Furry Friends 


I have chosen the cutest stamp ever it's Tilda with Millie the mouse and I have coloured her with distress ink pads & reinkers on Langton cold press paper. I also used the thimble stamp for them to sit on  .I made him brown instead of white as that is what I have seen in the garden lol and have saved many from the jaws of Mr Kiefe my cat !! ...furry friend !!

I used Papermill linen card as the base and used Pion designer papers Alma's sewing room for the layers and die cuts. I have used a mix of blue & pink frantage and glitter tuille to to add some sparkle;0)

The doily die behind her is from my bloggy friend !!. The bow & tag die are from Magnolia. The stunning lace and pearl trims and most of the embellies are from Live & Love Crafts . 


The pearl brads are from the hobby house !!

I hope you can join us at The Sketchy Challenges and see all the wonderful design teams inspiration and meet our wonderful new designers !!
