Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge #33

Good morning!  How about a great sketch challenge today?  Today is the day for the  Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge, sponsored this week  by The Stamping Boutique.  Melissa has a fabulous sketch to follow, and you have a couple of chances to win a great prize if you play along. 

For this card, I used the Sitting Audrey image from The Stamping Boutique.  I never choose my paper before I start coloring, but somehow, I always manage to find patterend paper in my stash that matches.  This K&Co. paper fit the bill for this image, which I colored with my Copic markers.  The card stock is all from Stampin' Up!, as is the celery twill ribbon, and the hemp twine, and sentiment.  I threaded some matching buttons through the twine, gave it a twirl in a place or two, and that's about it.  I did use my oval and scalloped oval nesties for Audrey's backdrop, and my SU oval punches for the sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and please stop by again... ANYTIME!!  I'm happy to have ya!  Wishing you a warm and wonderful day filled with lots of happy stamping!

Love ya,

Hi Lorie,
I never choose my papers before I start coloring either. Sometimes finding the right paper takes the longest. Your card is yet another beauty!!
