Bloggers Challenge Sketch!

Here we are...Sunday evening, and I'm just posting my card for Friday's Blogger's Challenge. Our challenge for this week is this wonderful sketch from our "Challenge Mom" Lisa Somerville. I'm late with my posting because I went to Cape Cod this weekend to have a little stamping fun at A*Muse*a*palooza. My card was ready for Friday, but I couldn't post because even though I'm lucky enough to stay with my dh's aunt when I travel to the Cape, I'm not so lucky to have internet access...lol! Now that you know why I'm posting so late (so sorry) and you've seen the sketch that we were given, here is my card...

I recently placed an order with Elzybells Stamps in the United Kingdom and they arrived this past week. This sweet image and sentiment came all the way across the pond to have a new home in my little stamping studio! The image is colored with Copic Markers (B0000, B00, BG10, BG18, BG72, C9, G21, G28, Y11, Y21, YR15, and the Colorless Blender) and I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. The card base is Stampin' Up's Not Quite Navy and the patterned paper is from the Girl Friday collection by Cosmo Cricket. The image and the patterned paper are layered with Cool Caribbean. I added some matching organdy ribbon and a button to go along with the sketch. A rather simple card, but I'm quite happy with how it all came together.

I'm having withdrawl from not having my computer all weekend...lol, so I'm anxious to see what the other Ladies from the BC group have come up with. If you'd like to see their creations too, just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right side bar. I hope that you have a beautiful start to the week! Thank you so much for visiting me this evening...Toodles! :D
