Fab n Funky Challenge #136 - Sketch Birthday

Hello again,

Two posts in one's been a busy week for me so far :) 

We have a new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky  and our two
wonderful sponsors are: Stamp Art Design by Kathryne and Joanna Sheen. 

Please visit the Fab n Funky blog to see the wonderful prizes being offered. 

Our hostess Shirley has a fabulous sketch for you to use with the theme of "Birthday".   

I decided to try something I've never done before and came up with a criss cross card, since it fits in perfectly with the sketch.  The tutorial can be found here on the SCS site.  I coloured a Mo Manning Digi called "Wish Big" .  Isn't she a sweetie...reminds me so much of my youngest granddaughter. Just wanna squeeze her :)
