Sketch stitch challenge

It has been a week since I have been able to participate in any challenges or to stamp and I was starting to go through withdrawl LOL. I did manage to color 2 images while I was away but I had hoped to get to more colored-oh well. Anyway, I was hoping that I could incorporate one of them into today's sketch challenge. I was able to but it was tough to get it the correct size and next time around I would use a smaller image. I also cut my layers and base the wrong size so my card is a bit larger than the standard 1/4 sheet size.

I colored my image with copics and prismamarkers and added stickles to the ice cream and crystal effects to the dog's nose. I stitched my orange dp layer to my card base for the high hopes challenge this week which was to use stitching on your card. My layout is the SCS sketch challenge of the week. I pierced the corners of the red layer for some extra dimension.

A closer look

stamp- high hopes ice cream for two
ink- palette noir
CS- bashful blue texture, real red, summer picnic dp
accessories- paper piercer, diamond stickles, copics (E00 E33, E37, E47, E21), prismamarkers (slate blue, light cerulean blue, orange. crimson red, tuscan red), crystal effects, stitched ribbon, sewing machine

Thanks so much for stopping by. God Bless!

Copics & prismacolor pencils? Ooooh, that is totally my favorite way to color. Your card looks awesome! I especially love the sparkle on the ice cream.
