1st ever Blog Candy! and Sweet Dreamers Blog Challenge #9-Aly's Sketch Challenge

 10 year old Aly loves to stamp.  Her Mom let her post a Blog, where she posts a sketch challenge every other week- and each participant has the chance to win  Blog Candy. So, I decided to really celebrate World Card Making Day, I would offer additional Candy- and this is my first ever blog candy- for anyone who finds my post and participates in Aly's challenge.

First, this is the sketch Aly drew (above....pretty challenging for a 10 yr old if I may say so myself!).  Below is my interpretation of the sketch this week- which is also a challenge for our SCS Sweet Dreamers Blog group- to participate in the sketch. 

Deets for my card:  I remade a previous card!  I found appropriate DSP to use- I have been using lots of DSP lately- this is by Basic Gray.  I set out the DP for the challenge, and chose Ruby Red as the matching card stock.  I cut out my image using Nestabilities circle and scalloped circle.  The image is Hello Friend  which is made by Firecracker Designs by Pamela.  I used the marker Watercolor technique on the main image, and she has flower soft added on her hairband (also from Firecracker Designs by Pamela).  I added the ribbon and the flower to complete the Sketch Challenge. 

Now, the below 'Candy' can be yours by:
1)Participate in Aly's Sketch Challenge
2)Go to Aly's blog
 and post a link to your card.
3)Come back to my blog and leave a comment, with a link to your card made with Aly's Sketch. (Please make sure I have a way to contact you- leave an e-mail address).
4)Post your card on Splitcoast if you have an account and with a link to my post or Aly's sketch post, then leave me your Member name (aka mine is mcschmidty) in your comment, and I will add your name in for a second chance to win.
5)There is one more week of Aly's Sketch- so a random number will be chosen NEXT Sunday, October 11th  from those that leave a link with a sketch to a card on Aly's blog.  You also have a chance to win Aly's 'candy' as well.

There are 5 Studio G stamp sets here and one small spool of double sided ribbon.

I will ship internationally as well-so please pass the word.

Thanks for encouraging the creativity of a young child!

Okay, I played in the challenge. I was going to play anyway, but I didn't want you to think I was ignoring your bribe. I'm always good for a bribe.
