Guest Designer for Sketch Saturady Challenge 84 ......



This is my first card of the New Year and also my first card as Guest Designer for Sketch Saturday for the month of January!!   Woooo Hooo!!!!!   This week it is design team member Simonne's turn to provide the sketch and I must say it is a wonderful sketch to work with, I have flipped the sketch for my card.




Sketch 84 is being sponsored by Your Next Stamp and Karen has very generously offered the "Shopper Fhiona" stamp set to one lucky Sketch Saturday entrant - thanks Karen!



As Karen is sponsoring this challenge and as I am a Your Next Stamp starlet I decided to use my YNS  Happy Day's Mermaid stamp set for my card, these stamps are a dream to colour with promarkers.




I have coulured my mermaid with promarkers and sakura stardust pen, I have used glossy accents for the crab and stickles stardust to edge the star fish,  emerald gems.  I have used DCWV c/s papers are K & Co Hopscotch, Victorian embossing folder for the panel, the sparkly ribbon is from my stash - I just had enough to fit this card.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you can find the time to join in with this weeks challenge.
