The Character Cafe - Feature Friday Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone

Every Friday the members of The Character Cafe either look for a challenge in blogsville to take part in using one of the amazing Character Cafe images or we are a part of a challenge hosted by one of the team - this week I am a part of the team that is being hosted by Diane at The Character Cafe Blog. The challenge she set us was a sketch challenge using the sketch below.
So I decided to use another one of the images that was released at the beginning of October called Dayzee. Having two daughters I knew this image would be so useful and an image that I could have fun with colour on. Once again I chose to use my faber castell pencils and sansador (UK gamsol) instead of my copics. My papers are from a Provocraft Rob n Bob paper pack and I finished the card with some organza ribbon, faux gems in a flowers shape and finally a Making Memories metal sentiment.
So that is my take on Dianes sketch, if you want to find out more about this challenge then please visit the Character Cafe Blog and also why not visit my fellow Design team members - Diane, Heather, Sara, Angie and Piali are all on the team with me that worked on Dianes sketch and Fink, Sarabeth, Deanne, Rachel, Lola and Billie will have creations that are from challenges in blogsville - Please visit them all! They are amazingly talented ladies and you will love what you find on their blogs.

If you need any of the images used by the Design Team then why not visit the Character Cafe Store!
Well that's it for the post - 'speak' to you again soon
