Guest dt card number 4 for Sketch Saturday

Time flies by right!? Here´s my fourth and last GDT card for Sketch Saturday :)
The sketch this week is very inspiring so come on and join us!  :) Looks like this:

I twisted and turned it a bit though, like this:

I choose to work with a cuter than cute image by Belle´s N Whistles. The fold is one of my favs, a twisted easel. The sentiment stamp is from Whiff of joy and I think it´s suits perfectly! :)
As usual I have inked the image with distress ink pads on 300 g watercolourpaper. The ubergorgoues dp´s are part of my newly founds fav paper pad from Melissa Frances called 5th avenue :) I can´t help my self, I seem to use them a lot lately :)
Before you go I strongely suggest you click this link because you´re in for some beautiful inspiration made by the very talanted dt over at Sketch Saturday :)

Guest DT card number two for Sketch Saturday

I´m so sorry this post is actually a wee bit late! I went to check out the gorgoues work by the talanted dt over at Sketch Saturday and realized I had actaully switched the sketches around. :( OMG!
So I had origanilly written a post all about sketch number three that I belived to be number two ;) Typical! So...this is actually my card for sketch number two and it´s awesome :) Here it is!

I decided to twist and turn it a bit though ;)

This little girl is part of the collection "Little Winged friends" from Bildmålarna, I think it´s gorgoues! Their top girl is named Mimosa and she´s just improved so much over the years. I have never been a fan before, but now that she is so cuted up and all romantic looking I´m hocked! ;)
Paired her up with some gorgoues dp´s from Melissa Frances from last year. The flowers are from Magnolia and WOC. She has been inked with distress ink pad on 300 g waterolour paper - like always ;)
Found my filmstrip ribbon from TH again and there simply is no project it doesn´t fit on ;) He,he,he! Lurv it! ;) The corner adornment is crystal swirls from Prima.

Did you know that Bildmålarna is running their own challenges now? It is called Bildmålarna challenges. Click the link to see some amazing work with their images!
I want to enter challenge 1 with this card: Anything goes! Of course you need to add a Bildmålarna image to it though! ;)  

Thank you so much for looking today!
I´ll be back again later with a prewiev of another fabby Pinkette image from TPS :)
