Sketch Saturday #454

Hello friends!!

Can I just tell you how much I am lovin' being part of the SKETCH SATURDAY design team!!

This week we are comin' back at ya with this fun sketch by Gloria.

This challenge is sponsored by SAMI STAMPS and I chose the super cute LUCKY LEPRECHAUN image for my card.

Here's what I made for the challenge:

My wee lucky leprechaun looks like he has been caught out in a rain storm...well he has.

Never content to leave well enough alone, I feel the need to distress things until they hardly look like what they were when they started.

This poor fella (and the other images on the card) were spritzed repeatedly with water, dried and then givena  good going over with a sanding block.

And look, he's still holding his lucky shamrock thinking that good things are going to happen!!

If you think the layer looks slightly would be correct! That's just how I roll! I need things to be just a little off centre LOL

Fabulous card, great take on the sketch, I like the sketches they do on this challenge blog although I quite often run out of time.
