SFYTT and Lulu

Hi all,
Hope everyone is having a lovely Easter weekend - did you make a bit of craft time in the midst of the cooking and company???

I decided to play along with a sketch out there in blog land.  Have you ever played along with Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT)???  She's got some really great layouts, and she has an amazing design team!

Here is the sketch for April:

Here's my take:
My card base is white CS.  My patterned papers are from SU's Nouveau Chic DSP pack, and my mats are all black. 
I also added some Dew Drops to the corners of the smaller panels.

I stamped Clara Lulu onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured her with Copics, and added shading with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I cut her out with Classic Circle Nesties and added some Wheat Versamagic sponging inside the stencil.  I backed that with a die cut from the Spellbinders Parisien Motifs set - very intricate and lacy, but the circle covers most of it.
I added a bunch of glitter dots all around her and I added some yummy butterflies punched out with my Martha Stewart punch.

Don't forget about our Bellarific Friday challenge this week: showers!  Make a card for a bridal or baby shower, or something with rain on it!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

WOW Robin this is beautiful. I love that she is basically all greens, against that paper, it really makes her pop. Wonderful colouring and shading. Love your take on the sketch!
