It's Isabella Time!

Happy Wednesday all!  Time for another challenge from Isabella's Sketchbook and this week we have a sketch challenge for you:

And because there are lots of newborns around at the moment, I thought this would be the perfect sketch for a new baby card:

Image: Isabella's Sketchbook, 'Girlie Jumper'

Papers: October Afternoon

Isn't this an adorable image?  I just love baby clothes (and babies!) - so tiny and pretty, and this one is no exception. 

I wanted this card to be happy and bright and these October Afternoon papers were the obvious choice.  I'm having a run on yellow at the moment for some reason - may be I'm just hoping the sun will come out soon!

Coloured with my Copics and Prismas, as always, I used my Nestabilities oval dies to cut out the image and mat it on to yellow scalloped oval for 'pop' factor.  I layered up the background strips with yellow polkadots and pink satin ribbon, and I couldn't resist the two pink bows!

Don't forget to check out the other DT samples - I know my talented teamies will have some gorgeous work to show you.

So, it's over to you now.  Show us your creative 'take' on the sketch and you will be in with a chance of winning two images from Isabella's Sketchbook and a beautiful 'I Won' badge for your blog.

Don't forget that you must use an Isabella's Sketchbook image for your entry. There are over two hundred to choose from so you're bound to find something to suit your mojo!

Can't wait to see your creations!

Happy crafting.
