Party Time Tuesdays sketch challenge

Hi friends! This week's Party Time Tuesdays challenge is to use this sketch:

I flipped the sketch since the image I was given to work with was more vertical than horizontal, but sketches are always open for interpretation!  This super adorable image is by Paper Shelter and that little girl totally reminds me of me!  lol  I used to stay up all night (seriously, 'til 5 or 6 am!) during the summer reading The Babysitters Club series.  I loved devouring books then and still do, though I can't pull all-nighters reading for pleasure anymore!  :) 

I colored the image with my Copics and matted it with some blue cardstock.  The DCWV purple paper was cut into banner shapes and layered on top of yellow cardstock.  The sun was in my miscellaneous drawer (we all have one, right??) so I pulled it out and added a swirl from a deeper orange sun.  I wanted it to sparkle, so I dumped some Doodlebug Sugar Coating on top and added it to my card with foam tape.  Here's a closer image:

To finish off my sketch, I stamped the Studio G sentiment.. ahhh, what a perfect summery card.  :)  I hope you enjoy my card and have time to link up!
