Whiff of joy sketch challenge

Katharina at Whiff of joy has a little sketchchallenge on her blog. She's launching a new line of stamps tomorrow called "party animals" and are they cute or what. Make sure to join the launchparty tomorrow. I think it's at 11pm GMT+1 time. You can read about it on the blog.
She's actually offering one of the stamps as a prize for this sketchchallenge and I couldn't resist. Cute animals are my thing and I would love to play with this mouse. I think that if I don't win I will get it anyway (although the euro is so expensive now, yikes!). The sketch was really hard for me, but I'm glad I did it. Can't say I'm that satisfied with the card, but hey, you win some and you lose some. This one was definately on the "lose" part of the scales. What surprises me the most is that I don't feel like it was a waste of time or that I suck (like I might have thought only a couple of months ago. Is that what they mean when they say you're "growing"? LOL) I'm happy with the coloring though.

I love the image I used. It's from a pixiesheet from faeriesong - so glad I bought it when they just came out and the dollar was still low compared to the Swedish krona :)

I put up a better photo on the card I made yesterday - for the magnolia vs stampavie challenge if you want to take a look (the post below).
