Sketchy Friday Challenge #8

It's already Friday!! It has been crazy busy around here. My Mom had hernia surgery last Thursday and yesterday we were hit with a massive snow storm so no school yesterday or today:) I feel like I have been neglecting my blog and am so glad it is Sketchy Friday so that I can be creative. 

I decided to create a bookmark and I completely fell in love with Gus holding the shamrock. Isn't he darling! 

I used some heavy cardboard I had and adhered some fun patterned paper from My Mind's Eye - Lemon Twist. I really like that it is double sided. 

The ribbon, from American Craft, was a great buy at Michael's and matched the patterned paper perfectly. I used Glossy Accents for his eyes and Firefly Stickles for his little antennas and underneath his feet. 

The sentiment is an SKdigi that Sonia created. I colored Gus and the sentiment with Copic markers. I finished the bookmark off with some tulle.

Below is the sketch for you to be able to enter your creation. Remember, you don't have to use a SKdigi to enter the challenge. Hope to see your work too:)

Thanks for stopping by!
