ISS Sketch Challenge - SC9

What happened to spring?  Around here it seems like winter is coming again ~ it is cold, rainy, and we are expecting some snow showers.....snow in May....yuck!  Can't wait for the weather to warm up again so we can get out and enjoy it!

Today brings us our monthly sketch challenge at InStyle Stamps

Here is this months sketch:

And here is my version of it: 

For my card today I used Cupcake Chloe ~ I am really loving these new girls!  I colored her in with copics and then added faux stitching around the border.  I thought these Doodlebug papers were a great match for this image, so I just had to pull them out.  I added some white dots on the cupcakes (like on the papers) and then went all around the pink panels with the dots as well.   

Please stop by and visit the rest of the Design Team to see how they interpreted this sketch (the links are on the left side of my blog).   We'd love to have you join in our challenge this month so head on over to the  InStyle Stamps blog for further details.
