Tracy's Sketch Challenge

My sweet friend Tracy started doing challenges over on her blog, Eat, Sleep, Stamp! Just click on her blog's name for the details and then you can play along too if you'd like.

Last Thursday's Challenge was this delightful sketch! It has been forever and a day since I've inked up my beloved A Muse stamps, so needless to say, I really enjoyed this challenge! The image, sentiment, stitched ribbon, and 4-Bar Notecard are all from A Muse. I used some chocolate colored cardstock and a strip of Rich Amber cardstock from Core'dinations (Don't forget the Core'dinations sale over at Storage Units, Ink and More) to accent the green notecard. I made the sun with a tiny circle stamp that I've had in my stash since I first started stamping. It has finally been put to good use. I inked it up with Colorbox Chalk ink in Bisque and then added a touch of Tangerine to the edges.

This card turned out exactly how I envisioned it. That doesn't happen too often...lol! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles!!! :D
