May All Your Dreams Come True
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #50}

We had another great weekend, starting off with a 90 minute spinning class Saturday morning, after which we left for Hartbeespoort Dam (South Africa), where we celebrated my niece Heidi's husband's birthday, Saturday evening.  The celebration was at De Vette Mossel, a rustic open air seafood restaurant where masses of seafood are cooked on open fires i.e. a fish barbeque.  We stayed the night at a guest house in Hartbeespoort Dam.


This week our theme for Challenge #50 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is a Sketch Challenge designed by yours truly (see sketch a bit lower down in this post). I used the Flower image from SK Digis.  You can purchase it here  The sentiment is a freebie from Desert Diva (Hannelie).  

My very first attempt at using my limited colour range of Copic Markers, to be exact 5 colours.  The flowers on the main image as well as all the little flower embellishments were coloured with Copic Markers.  Only the leaves on the main image has been coloured with H2O's. 


 Here's the sketch to be followed for this challenge:

Hope you will play along this week - so come on link your creations, following our sketch, to Tammy's Scrapin Corner's Challenge No.50. Can't wait to see what you create with my sketch.  Remember the sketch is open to your personal interpretation thereof..

Off to link this creation to the following challenges:

A big welcome to my new Followers and I hope that you and my old faithful Followers will enjoy your visits here.  Only 10 new Followers to go to my 500 Follower Give-Away.

  68. I am sorry but I have had to remove your card from our challenge. Beautiful as it is, you have entered it into 20 challenges and our criteria is 15 including our challenge.

    I hope you will come back again, as I am sure this was just an oversight on your part.
