Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 87

Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), and I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog on Saturday. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Friday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC87 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

Yesterday was my daughter's 8th birthday!  Seriously?  EIGHT??  She really wanted to have a roller skating party with some of her friends, and wow, did that take me for a trip in the Way Back Machine.  I've forgotten how much I love to skate.  I thought a card for Avery using this cute little Bug from Feelin' Groovy would be perfect.  Turquoise is her favorite color at the moment, so I used that color as my focus - yellow used to be her color, so I added some of that too.  The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics and I thought it would be really cute to write her age on the license plate.  Can I tell you how nervous I was trying to write that on there?  I forgot to add it until after I had mounted the image up with dimensional tape!  No do-overs! haha!  I added a couple Aqua Rhinestones along with some blue glitter brads.  Instead of a square, I decided to use the rainbow image and cut it out and pop it up over the main image panel - added some Sugar Sparkly Fluff to the clouds as well.  Can't have clouds without the fluff you know!  The paper is Flower Power by Doodlebug, Inc.
