Dutch Dare ~ Sketch Time / Heard about your surprise!


Hi All!
Today's challenge at Dutch Dare Card Challenges is a sketch.
 I love sketches!
THis card was a lot of fun. Partly because I love sketches and partly because I made it for a friend who  found herself pregnant after her first month of marriage ;( not in the plans but a happy event none the less! lol)
I'm quite happy how this card came out except that after making fun of spellbinder's nesties that look like maxi pads (see here) I realized I had bought the 'pad with wings' version unwittingly! Ah, he who laughs last laughs best!
So without further ado here's the sketch:

Easy peasy, right?

So! The image I am using is Mo Manning's celebrate available here.
I have colored with prismacolors on Kraft paper. The sentiment was made for me by my blog buddy, Annika. Thanks, Annika! I totally love it!
And a close up:
So thats it for now.
 Be sure to join in the challenge at DDCC. Remember you have a whole fortnight to add your creation to the pool!

Fabulous card, Dorcas, and a wonderful image from Mo to use for the 'happy event'. You have certainly mastered the Kraft paper for your pencils. I am sure your friend will L-O-V-E her card.
