Digital Tuesday Challenge #9 ...it's a sketch

Hello and happy tuesday! Can you believe it is already June! Wow, time is surely flying.
Today's card was made for this week's Digital Tuesday Challenge.
Jenn is the hostess this week and she create a wonderful sketch to work with.
I decided to use "Sammy Squirrel eats strawberries" from the Digital Stamp Oasis. It is one of my favorite images that my husband drew. And it is so much fun to color!
The sketch
The designer papers that you see are actually just one single sheet of designer paper. It is from the "sweet stack" from DCWV. Image was colored with copics, I sponged the edges with certainly celery ink to soften it a little bit. I embellished with sizzix flourishes, prima flowers and the ribbon. The sentiment was made on the computer. For a little sparkle I added rhinestones to the flower centers and stickles to the strawberry leaves.
Be sure to check out the challenge blog to view the other cards created by the super talented DT for this challenge. Plus Digital Stamp Oasis is sponsoring this week, one lucky participant will win 3 digis of her choice.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I hope you are having a wonderful day and I hope you get to create something fabulous!!
