High Hopes Sketch challenge

Our new challenge this week at High Hopes is a fab sketch
Play along with your High Hopes stamps for the chance to win a new one of your choice :)

Firstly, let me apologise for the rubbish photo of my card ... one of these days I'm gonna splash the cash on a new camera and my images will be splodge free!  I also had 'issues' with photographing the 'black' circles which are actually little shiney silver card candy.

I had a real 'Doh!' moment when I went to photograph my card .... and I realised that my sentiment said 'Wishing you a turtally awesome birthday".  Hang on a minute, that's a frog, not a turtle.  Aarrrrgh!  So after a bit of tearing and ripping, this was the only sentiment I could find that was the right shape to cover up the damage!  But sure, nobody will ever know, and I'm not gonna tell them ;)

My image is Froggy Posey - coloured with pencils and paper pieced flower.  I've also used a wee Fly from the latest release and paperpieced him too, and then added some sparkle to the wings.

Other challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday - paper piecing
Simon Says Stamp Monday - winged things
Crafting When we Can #67 - ribbon / twine / washi
The Squirrel and the Fox #67 - all creatures great and small
Sister Act #52 - anything goes
