SOG Oct Challenge

Afternoon ODDies! :) I know I'm super late, but it's better to be late than never. I find myself saying that a lot on this blog lately! LOL. Stick with me..

So you all know we've a new challenge over at Some Odd Girl at the beginning of each month.. and at the beginning of October we posted a brand new SKETCH CHALLENGE for you to join in with.

Here's what I come up with using the adorable Happy Tia and some My Minds Eyes goodness. 

This was a commission from a gorgeous Irish girlie who often orders from me, she gives me total free reign, so I just went with it! :) I've used some yummy papers from My Minds Eye and coloured up Tia in a little pink and brown outfit to match!

I've used a mixture of sources to create the sentiment. The 'birthday wishes' is from a SU! set, 'RUBY' has been stamped out with some Lawn Fawn alpha stamps (both stamped in Rose Red ink from SU!) and the '2' has been die cut with the TH Vintage Market die.

I've layered up this design with banners, crochet lace trim and a vellum die cut. You can take our ODD sketches any which way you like. You can keep it CAS or go all out and layer it up big style. I've added a heap load of WOC goodness (I'm determined to use up over 75% of the flowers I already have before I even think about ordering anymore - even though some of their new designs are making me wanna die) some Doodlebug brads, oh and a little butterfly brad from SU!, and some Kaisercraft gems. Yummy. :) Last but not least I added some Candy Cane Stickles here and there. I really love how that stuff dries, it's not so much sparkly.. but chunky. Really good stuff. :)

Need some more inspiration? Head over to the SOME ODD GIRL BLOG now and see what the ODDies have whipped up for ya. Seriously. DO NOT MISS IT!!
