Sketch and Stash Challenge 3 and SBS25 Challenge

Sketch and Stash is on it's third challenge already! As Janet from the SBS "sisterhood" also challenged us to use ovals and a ribbon, which fit the sketch well, I have combined the two. I used my lovely new Elusive Images knickerbocker glory stamp (from the same plate as the champagne bottle), embossed it and painted it with H20s and other watercolours.
I mounted it on a piece of chocolate coloured paper that I've had in my stash for ever and a day, with an oval cut into it.
The background paper is Basic Grey, from Stamp Addict's sale and the ribbon came from our holiday in the US last year (ah, the joys of $2 to £1).
The sentiment at the bottom comes from the Elusive Images design plate again and I added Yum from my Hero Arts cupcakes set. There's a gem on the Yum, I saw a tiny mark on it - after I'd matted it and stuck it down! So I added another one on top of the dessert...
I had a lot of fun making this. Yes, it's still snowing out there and yes, I'm still holed up in the craft room :)
