Sorry that I was a bad blogger, lat week's schedule was crazy and even thought I had time to stamp (had to fill some orders) I did not have time to post. So I was determined to get this week's Sketch Challenge done today. Even though I am a little behind, I still got it complete! I used this color combo last week on one of my orders (which you will see later) and loved it so when I saw this challenge I thought I would try to use it again. I am not much of a painter but once this card starting to come together I knew I was just going to have to bite the bullet and do it. I find it so much easier to paint when the outline in raised so I started out by embossing it (another thing I have not done in a very long time. To do my design on the top layer background I randomly stamped the flower in Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum and Whisper White Craft Ink. I used the Ric Rac Eggplant ribbon from the Orchard Ribbon Originals pack. I used my circle cutter to cut my circles, another thing I forget to grab and use. Off to pick the kid up from wrestling practice....oh and on a personal note my 14 yr old son made it to State this year in wrestling. He is a first place regional champ for his weight bracket!
