Sketch Saturday Challenge & Dustin Pike Blog Candy

Over on Dustin Pike's Blog he is offering some lovely prizes as candy BUT there is a catch you have to make a card to send to a child on Postpals. Now as most you probably know by now this is a really worthwhile cause, if you have not heard of them pop on over and take a look. I for one have sent off several cards already but I could not refuse another especially as there is candy on offer.

I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog where they are celebrating their first Birthday this week. Happy Birthday to you all. There is a lovely birthday prize from 'The Craft Barn' and the design team members are each offering a giveaway themselves this week.

As I could not fit all my image onto my largest oval nestie, I printed it one white cardstock, coloured it, cut it out and then stuck the dragon to the oval and the kite higher up on the card. I used foam pads in sizes 3mm, 2mm, and 1mm to give a gradient effect and then drew in the string on myself with a black letraset fine line pen.

Sorry about the photo it looks really dull but it is actually lime green

I have used:-

6" square card blank - Craft Superstore

Backing Paper - DCWV 'Blossoms & Butterflies'

Mat & Layers - Coredinations 'So Mod'

Image - Dustin Pike freebie download

Colours - Promarkers

Sentiment - Papemania

Die - Nestabilities Large Classic Oval & Large Scalloped Oval

Ribbons - Crafty Ribbons

Punch - Xcut Ribbon Threader

Gems - Anita's Gem Wheel & moon & star from stash.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like my card, all comments welcome.
