Getting sketchy at Crafty Ribbons

Happy Thursday morning to you lovely peeps!
Time once again for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons.
Thanks for all your fabulous creations on our last challenge, you really are a crafty lot aren't you?
Please stop by the Crafty Ribbons Challenge blog and see if you were one of our handpicked top 3 or our Random Winner!
So, onto our new challenge.
This time the challenge is:
That's right folks, our hosts for this challenge are Tessa and Anke and they have devised a sketch for you to follow.  Remember you can turn it however you like so long as we can still see the sketch.
So, first things first - the prize on offer for this challenge.
This time it will be one of "Bev's Bags"
(contents may vary from the picture).
Bev's Bags are fantastic value and so choc full of ribbony goodness, you won't be disappointed, trust me!
So here is my project for this challenge:
My image is a Sarah Kay stamp - isn't she gorgeous. (Big thanks to a certain friend - you know who you are!!).   She is coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers and I have chalked around the edge of the image in colours to match my theme.

The image is matted onto some Tim Holtz Core dinations card and I have distressed the edges.

All the flowers are from my stash.  The flourish and the doily are both Marianne creatables dies.
The papers I have used are from a papermania pad called Excuisite.

The fabulous Thank You ribbon is one of a new range at Crafty Ribbons and is available here.
I hope you will find the time to join us over the festive season and I will take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Year's

I love promarkers - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything goes
