Stamp with Sarah Kay Challenge - And A Big Thank You!


Here is my card for the Stamp with Sarah Kay Challenge. This week there is a gorgeous sketch to follow, I turned the sketch on it's head because otherwise my little girl would have been facing the wall so to speak!! This is my first Sarah Kay card, I've been admiring cards made with these stamps for a long time and I think she looks beautiful coloured in sepia tones so I went for lots of browns on this card. I coloured the image with Pro Markers and the papers are a mixture of makes (I think some are from DoCrafts) I ran the brown paper through the cuttlebug script folder (it doesn't show up too well on the photo) for added texture. I added some little flowers, punched leaves and wire to the sketch for added decoration. Oh, and I hand stitched all around the outside of the card (I told you it was my new fad!!) The sentiment circle is from Cuddly Buddly.

I also have to say a big thank you to my wonderful friend Jill...

The postie brought me the most adorable bundle of goodies today, stamped images, flowers, ribbon and Jill's beautiful card for the Friday Sketchers Challenge which I had admired!! It's beautiful! Thanks so much Jill, you've made my day!!!
Love Becky xx

Hi Becky, thanks for the lovely comment you left me. Your card is just as fab and you've done a great job with the Promarkers. To answer your question, I used a SANDSTONE Promarker, assuming you are off to shop now!!
