Sketch It: Blogger's Challenge



This week is one of my favorite types of challenges. SKETCH challenge!! Lisa (our list mom) put together an awesome sketch this week.

My mother-in-law and brother-in-law are in town from California for the next few days so I only got a few minutes to throw together a card, but of course I had fun doing it. I wish I would have made the center panel just a little smaller as I wasn't sure what to do with the space between the sewing and the images.

I hope you enjoy the card, I combined it with Leigh's color challenge for The Cat's Pajamas this week which was kiwi, blue sky and chocolate. My colors aren't exactly perfect, but close enough. I also used my new Verve Stamps that I won a gift certificate for stamps when I participated in one of the Anni-verve-sary challenges.

Off to watch some t.v. before hitting the bed early tonight.

Card details: Delightful & Delicious by Verve Stamps
Cardstock: retired CTMH kit, watercolor paper
Inks: Memento Ink, Copicx YG95, E31, W3, Boo, BG000
Accessories: Papertrey Ink Rustic Buttons & Rustic Twine (Jute)
