Cute Card Thursday - Sketch by Me!

This week on Cute Card Thursday it is a sketch designed by yours truly!
It is a very basic sketch because I am very basic, but that makes it a nice easy one!
We are sponsored this week by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
I used the sweet Mo Manning image 'What's Cooking' she was only $1 last week and all proceeds were to be sent to the relief aid in Japan, a very worthy cause! she raised £1000!  it was such a success that Mo will do another fundraising stamp!
I coloured this sweet image with Copics and Prismacolors and am entering this image into the 
Make it Colourful challenge which is to blend green and yellow (as on her little pinny)

Although I opted not to make a book card for this one I still wanted to give the insides a good make over too!
I used one of my all time favourite papers Basic Grey 'Lily Kate'

I added this little tag for a challenge over on Colorful Creations my jeopardy square was to add a tag to my card!  The sweet postage stamp rubber stamp is by Whimsy Stamps from the Raindrop Echo Designs sentiment selection.

I used a variety of punches to create the flowers, leaves, butterflies, edges and corners.

I tried to make the back mirror the layout on the front.
My personalized stamp is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts!
Other challenges I am entering with this card are
Cutie Sunday ~ Spring Colours
A Spoonful of Sugar ~ ribbon, pearl/rhinestones and flowers
My Time to Craft ~ Ladies Day
Papertake Weekly ~ its a mom thing/ girly
Simon says stamp challenge, ~ mothers day/girly
Everybody Art ~ Happy Birthday
Please pop along and see the rest of the DT's gorgeous creations and I so hope you get the chance to play along!
thanks for dropping in, have a fabulous day!
EDIT * Sparkle is donating $5 to the Japan Relief effort  for every Rin stamp sold until the end of March*
Just ordered mine!
