Sketch Time at Here Come The Boys

It's Sunday, and a new challenge is starting over at Here Come The Boys.  This time around we have a sketch for you to use. I love a nice sketch... and as you'll see this IS a nice sketch :)  Here's my card











and here's the sketch.........................
As soon as I saw this great image "Bathing Beauty" from Kenny K I thought of the film Memphis Belle (which I LOVE), she even has the anklet that the beauty on the plane had! The Cutie Pie Challenge current theme is Favourite Films, so I'm entering there.  I coloured the image with Copics.

I thought the papers from Kaiser's Vintage Timeless pad suit her well. The Pink Elephant wants us to use 3 papers + our favourite embellishment.  I've actually used 4 papers, embossing the square panel with Couture Creations Hedged Maze folder, then distressing the embossing back, I don't use a lot of embellishments on my cards (I just buy them, lol) but brads feature often, as the stars on this card do.  Foam dots don't count as an embellishment, but I use them A LOT... I love the 3D look :)
In keeping with the vintage theme I used Kraft instead of white cardstock, Moving Along With The Times has Lets Get Krafty,  Cupcake Craft Challenges want us to Get Our Kraft On and  Papertake Weekly have Anything Goes with the optional use of Kraft, so I'm entering there too.
I followed the sketch on the inside too, using some postcard scrapbooking paper from my stash, The Anything Goes Challenge has Mail It for their challenge so I'm entering there.
The sentiment is computer generated, I cut the image panel with Mpress Curved Rectangles die then used a smaller one from the set cut in half for the sentiment.  Simon Says Challenge and One Stop Craft Challenge bot have Birthday/Celebration challenges so I'm entering there.
That's about it for today's card, hope you can join us in the challenge this time around, pop over to the blog and check out my teamies inspiration... it's amazing how differently we all used the sketch.
I'm off now to my Son and Daughter in Law's place to visit them and the twins... and to take them some dinner (my Son and DIL that is, not the twins :))
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
