What a Sketch!

Can you believe we are now on sketch 107 for Sweet Sketch Wednesday? I have really created a whole bunch of sketches for you to enjoy. It was fun using this sketch. I don't think there has been too many sketches I haven't really liked though. But some have been my favorite. This sketch worked really well with my image and paper. While putting it together though I wondered because it covered up my umberellas. All of a sudden I thought of a solution! I would puch out the umberellas and then do the scallop circle behind them. I put crystal effects over the center to make them pop.

Our sponsor  for Sweet Sketch Wednesday is Amber Inks. They have some really adorable image. When I saw this girl with the umberella I knew I had the perfect paper for it. So that is what I decided to use. Amber Inks also has lots of cute bunnies. You know me and Bunnies. That's usually what I would pick. But this time I decided to do something different. Be sure and bug on over to Amber Inks and check them out. Amber Inks is giving away a $15 gift certificate to our lucky winner.

Well, I made a new light box and I was testing it out on these pictures. I think it probably going to do a better job for me. But I need to work on my light source and figure out more as to where I will be clipping them.

Hope you have a sweet week. Please come back often and check me out. Love to hear your sweet comments.



  1. This was such a fun sketch, Arlana and you did a wonderful job on your creation. I love those papers and what a cute image, colored so beautifully. I really love the umbrella discs that you created. Wonderful idea.
    Hope your day is fabulous.


  2. Hi Arlana, I love, love, love this card. Your colors are wonderful and that image is as cute as can be. I love your embellishments..the umbrellas are so cute. Your papers are jsut perfect! See you soon.
    Hugs, Nancy

  3. Gorgeous card - immediately caught my eye on Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I just had to swoop in for a closer look. Love the umbrella pops! Thanks bunches for Amber Inking!

  4. Hi Arlana, I love your card, I kept on looking at your umbrellas and thought what perfect embellismnets then I looked again and realised you had made them as they were the same as the umbrella's on your paper. Great job just love your card image and design papers. I would love to know how you made your light box I remembered Jenny made one and she loved hers. Have a great weekend with Judi and Nancy and behave yourselves.

  5. What a fun sketch indeed Arlana!!! One I'm sure I will use again and again!!! Love your card and those umbrellas...very clever!


  6. This is just the cutest card Arlana - I love the umbrella embellishments! What a great idea of using crystal effects - I have that but never think to use it but now you have me motivated! Your papers are so perfect with the image and I always love your wonky stitching - it's your trademark I think and it just adds so much interest. Your photos look good with the new lightbox - good and pure color. I made mine out of cardboard and have it on a shelf near a ceiling light but I have to stand on a chair to take my photos!!!! I'm thinking an official lightbox might be safer! Anyway have a great week!
