A Pollycraft Sketch!

Good Monday morning people!  It was my turn to choose the challenge theme this week at Pollycraft Monday and I decided to go with a sketch!   Before I show you the sketch though, I just wanted to say thanks for all the lovely entries into Anita's Cute Critters Challenge last week!  There was a lot of super cuteness!  We'll be back soon to announce the winners and top 3!

Here's my sketch for this week (thanks Paula for prettifying it up for me!):

As with our usual sketch challenges, you don't have to stick to the sketch completely... you can embellish as you wish, just make sure we can recognise the sketch in your entry.

The lucky winner of this challenge will receive 10 Pollycraft digis of their choice from the store!  What an awesome prize!  

Did you know that our top 3 favourites using a Pollycraft image also win a Pollycraft image of their choice?     And Paula released 12 gorgeous new images last week!  And there's also a promotion running in the store until 29th April!!!

Don't forget to hop over to the Pollycraft Monday blog to check out what my fabulous teamies have done with the sketch!

Here's my card using the adorable Barclay:
The papers are from Simple Stories and Crate Paper and the sentiment is a sticker from SRM.  The bling is from Prima and I have added Stickles to the star on his shirt and Glossy Accents to his eyes and balloon.  Simples!

Here's a close-up of Barclay:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time: Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes: Let's get Cute
Di's Digi Designs: Animal Friends

I hope you like the sketch!

See you later!
