Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Bugaboo

Soooo, Wednesday has rolled around again, and this week that means that it is time for my return to the design team for the challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, and this week we are sponsored by (drum roll please):

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can findBugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join theBugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

We have an amazing sketch for you to create with this week, which is actually a bit of a blast from the past:

My image from Bugaboo, as you can probably imagine. was actually quite easy to colour in, the little bit that I did I used spectrum noirs for.  When I saw this image, I just knew I had to have it - it just reminded me of Joey from Friends ("how you doin?!"), which has to be the best TV show ever - over ten years since it finished I still love to watch the re-runs and they never fail to make me laugh, even though I could probably quote each episode.  

I decided to use spring 'fresh' colours - yellow and green, for my backing papers.  I also decided to use texture rather than pattern on this card.

The papers are all from my stash and the ribbon is actually some raffia from the latest kit from Papercrafter, from which I also made a little bow.

Unfortunately, I now realise that I haven't followed the sketch very well - I forgot the sentiment and the gems.  I am so easily confused and forgetful at the  moment!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
