my entry for Mo's Dream Team Guest Spot challenge

Each month, Mo's Dream Team has a challenge for a Guest Designer Spot that following month.
Their Challenge for March 2010 Guest Spot is a Sketch Challenge! Can  flip or rotate the sketch, but the main elements must remain the same and can add any embellies!

Well, I'm taking the plunge - there are a lot of talented ladies that also love Mo's images and have entered....but "a turtle never gets anywhere unless he sticks his neck out!!"...so here goes!!!

Here is the sketch:

and here's my card....



well, all I can do now is just keep my fingers crossed !!

I colored him with Copics shown below...darkened his forearms and hands a little because he should be dirty (lol), made one eye bigger than the other to give him a different look and added that little bling for the train's light....and the sentiment I wrote with my computer and raised it on card! oh and I ran the ribbon under the image instead of over the panel as shown in the sketch...

Paper: SU's Taken with Teal, Celery, Burgundy and retired dp
Embellishments: stash ribbon and buttons with jute









Have blessed day!

Hi Linda,
Another fabulous card. There is always so much variety in your work - I love my visits here. I won't wish you good luck because I don't believe in luck but you should be a shoo-in to any design team.
Hugs,
