Paper Sundaes Challenge - A Sketch!

Oh, I just love me a good sketch...and this week Paper Sundaes has a great one!  Our sponsor this week is Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps, so head on over to the Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog to check out the sketch and the prize. 

I used my Basic Grey Marrakech papers for this week's card.  I just wasn't in the mood to colour **gasp!**  I know, I know...anyway, I decided to paper piece Lilith's dress, and it turned out very nice. 
The inside will probably have a birthday greeting, something along the lines of "now you're older" or whatever....I'll probably print it up on the computer when I go to give the card away. 

It is Mother's Day here, and so that means I get breakfast and the kids told me to "sleep in as late as you can" hopefully I'm still sleeping when this posts....but more likely I've already had my bacon and pancakes and have ooh'd and aah'd over the cards the kids made me.  Our plans for today include cooking a big turkey dinner and having my parents and brother over....and relaxing. 

Paper:  Basic Grey Makkarech, CTMH Outdoor Denim, Heavenly Blue
Inks:  Copic Markers
Accessories:  White Bella Dots, Nestabilities

Have just written a long comment and then Mr Blogger wouldn't let me publish it so have lost it all! Anyway i think it went something like this;
1) Happy Mothers Day (are YOU cooking that turkey?!)
2) Love the card, her skirt is perfect and i love the sketch
3) Might get a chance to play along with this one myself
4) Have a lovely rest of the weekend if you have any left as I can never remember if you guys are ahead or behing us time zone wise.
5) Think that was it
6)Mmmm bacon and pancakes...!
