Here it is....my blog candy sketch challenge!

I am so glad to be able to finally put up my newest blog candy!! Sorry everyone, I meant to do it sooner, but I've been off of work for the last few days with a really bad cold!
**Note: This post will stay at the top till September 5th. Scroll down for any newer posts!

I don't want to make you wait any longer...
Here is the blog candy that is up for graps!!

It includes, 2 small stamp sets, a quicky glue pen, over 10 yards of assorted ribbon, designer paper from DCWV Pocket Full of Posies mat stack, as well as lots of images (including some of the newest images from Sugar Nellies - designed by Elisabeth Bell, and Sarah Kay images...see below...To qualify for this blog candy...all you need to do is make a card from the following sketch, and post it on your blog, then leave me a message on this post so I can go and see it.

I want to make sure that I am clear here...this is a sketch challenge....you can use any stamp company you like...you are not restricted in any way!! Just have fun with this sketch!

If you don't have a blog, you can still participate!! Once you have finished your card, take a picture of it or scan it, and then email it to me at: stampin_angel@yahoo.ca

My blog candy challenge closes at midnight on September 5th, and I will be drawing the winner randomly on Sept. 6th.

The sketch and one of my samples is below. I actually have 2 samples for this sketch, but one was posted a month ago. Click here to go to my other sample. Here is my sample....

Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Sweet Art Ebony - Pen Pal, CTMH For every occasion.

Paper: Georgia Pacific Cardstock, Co-ordinations cardstock, Basic Grey Sugared paper pad.

Ink: Versafine black, SU basic black marker, Versamagic Jumbo Java teardrop, prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits.

Accessories: May arts ribbon, prima flowers, brad, leaves were made with Martha Stewart punch. I also used a Martha Stewart punch for the bottom of the brown flowered layer.

fantastic card, and a lovely idea with the blog candy.

I have just painted a penny black stamp and needed to come up with a layout for a new home card, i might just have to use your sketch and take part.

your colouring of the lady is just outstanding, just going to look at the rest of your blog.
