Sketch Saturday DT Call!

It's been a really good summer and now I'm back to blogger - did you miss me? lol
I've spent lots of time with my children and I also had an amazing break in Amsterdam. I was so pleased to see such brilliant works of art in the Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum.

Here is my first card in ages - I hope you like it.

The ladies at the Sketch Saturday challenge are looking for a new member for the design team. The application is in two parts and the first is to make a card using a sketch.
I've used a Whiff of Joy stamp which has been coloured with Copic markers, the edges have been rounded and distressed with peeled paint distress ink.
The papers are mainly from Basic Grey. The sentiment stamp is one that I found in a bargain bin at a garden centre last year. This has been overstamped with a crackle effect stamp.
The panel at the top has been created using the floret set of mini masks from Tim Holtz and some distress ink.
I've added some sticky ribbon and gems too.
It's been such fun getting all inky again!
