Happy Day

This is for today's SC165, sketch challenge over at SCS. Rox said the key element was to make sure to include a cut-out of some sort for that center piece, so I cut some cherries out of the Afternoon Tea DP. Oh boy...is that ever some fun paper. Reminds me of a summer day. So it worked just great for my new little Elzybells stamp, since she's enjoying a summer day on her swing! It's hard to see in the first photo, but she's got some gorgeous light blue cosmo fine glitter all over her little dress = ) ! Here's a close up of her sparkly dress ~


I have to keep this short today...I'm supposed to be doing workshop prep, but a snuck in a little time for a sketch challenge = ) ! Back to work (at least it's fun work!). Have a great afternoon !!!
