DT post for seems a little sketchy

Hi there friends and followers old and new - did you have a good weekend? We did have fun - Penny's party went well and thanks for your kind words on my cake - it was very tasty - not very good for my figure but hey ho! Here's a picture of Penny with the magician - she really had a great time - best party ever! She's wearing her new Merida outfit and holding on to the biggest magic wand ever!

Its time for a new challenge over at Seems a little Sketchy - here's the sketch.

We're sponsored by My Heart Pieces and Squigglefly - check out the blog here for full details of the prizes on offer.

Here's my card - I used a brand new image from squigglefly called Sketchy Dragonfly. The papers are mostly papermania. The diecut is my new Memory box die that will be featuring heavily in the next few weeks - I just love it!!! I've rotated the sketch through 90 degrees.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Pan Pastelpanpasteluk: Just two colours
stampinfortheweekend: Distressing
digitaltuesdaychallenge: up up and away
lexiscreations: Monochromatic
PMSpapermakeupstamps: Anything goes

I'll be back later with another DT card - thanks for visiting and hope to see you then.
