Frankie - Today's card is my Design team card for Seems a Little Sketchy. We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. Jody always comes up with the cutest images.

Here is Jenn's sketch. It is a simple one, but oh, so cute. Just like the image!

I actually made 8 of these, so that I could give them to my friends that I craft with every Wednesday. They have been getting together on Wednesdays for over 10 years. Due to my moving around, I met them shortly before I moved away for 5 years and I returned a little over a year ago. I really missed this sweet group of talented ladies and am so glad that now that my husband has retired, I never have to leave this awesome group again.

The image is Frankie Peekers. I colored Frankie with my Copics and used my air brush for the purple background.

My papers are from a seasonal blog by The Paper Studio. The frame was cut with my Cricut and the Happy Haunting cartridge. I cut the raven with black glitter paper.

The glittery bat is Recollections.

Come and get sketchy with us at Seems a Little Sketchy. It is a fortnightly challenge, so it is great for those design team people who want to work a little ahead. As Seems a Little Sketchy is fairly unknown, not many people enter, so that means you have a greater chance of winning.
