Stella Says Sketch!

Hi, everyone! It's time for another sketch challenge over at Catch the Bug! It's Sunday, and Stella hosts our sketch challenges every other week, so be sure to stop by for them! Sketches are one of my favorite challenges because they make it a little quicker for me to put a card together - sure saves me the time of planning the layout! :0)

For my card today, I've used the Bugaboo Stamps image, Dottie Beach
I created all my papers for this card in PSE and then printed each out.
I used my Sizzlit Beach Bag Die for the bag, some rhinestones and a scallop edge punch.
Dottie is one of my favorite characters, and purple and yellow seemed so fitting for her teeny bikini. I colored her in with my Prismacolor Pencils quite some time ago, and with the warmer weather approaching, and my upcoming trip to the beach with my hubby for our ten-year anniversary, I thought she needed to be completed on a card this week. :0)

Here's the sketch to follow:
