Carol's Fun Sketch meets Pink Petticoat

This is my "just by the skin of my teeth" entry for this fortnights Carol's Fun Sketch Challenge, which has to be in by 10pm this evening (it's now 9.28!) talk about leaving it to the last minute!! I've been meaning to do it for the last few days, but just haven't managed to fit it in & then today I saw these new digi-images from Pink Petticoat & fell in love, and decided to combine Carol's challenge with Pink Petticoat's Summer Themed Challenge for August. I printed out the digi-stamp, no problem, chose some PP papers and my printer decided it just didn't want to print out in colour this evening - no thanks very much, I'm on a colour strike! So after faffing about for far too long I had to find matching papers in my craft room stash instead.

So the image has been coloured with ProMarkers, the DSPs are Pebble Ink, c/s is Stampin' Up! Old Olive (which matched the Olive PM beautifully), the ribbon is SU Very Vanilla coloured with the same yellow PM as the flowers. I've put three strips of Old Olive c/s through my Cuttlebug with a flowery embossing folder as I was running out of time & struggling to find another good paper to match!

Phew - right must get this entered pronto!

Oh & sorry about the pic quality, the colours are brighter in real life, but had to take indoors with a flash (due to it now being dark outside!)
