Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 68

Its been a good day today, I went to a christening of a friends son this afternoon followed by a quick trip to the supermarket, then home. I can't believe how much my friends little daughter looks just like her when she was 4! and it was really good to catch up with her again too :)

So its another card today and this based on another sketch by the very talented Karen Giron - a link to her blog, The Sweetest Thing is in the links to the right if you want to check out her work.

I struggled a bit more with this one than last weeks, but one I started it came together really quickly - well I think it was quick, but as the saying goes, time flys when you're having fun :)

So this was the sketch:

I flipped the design by 90 degrees and mine turned out like this:

You can't really tell in the picture but Nikki is raised up on foam pads. The sketch was quite simple this week, and I thought that as I'd used fairly plain paper that it needed something, so out came the gems again :)
