Here is this week's Sketch and my card for your inspiration:

I used one of Shawne's cutest images, and coloured her with Copics, coloured pencils and OMS, and some gel pens. The sentiment "SMILE" is part of Shawne's set and the smiley is a button from my stash. Also from my stash is the yellow matting, and the balloon scrapbooking paper that came as part of a birthday kit - a perfect match! The embellishments are foil sprinkle stars that should be used as table decor but I found out some time ago that you can actaully pierce them with a needle and use them as sequins, so those were sewn onto the card using beads as spacers to left them off the card and beads to secure them onto the card. Neat - huh?
