My Card for Friday Sketcher’s Challenge

Okay, finally I did another card. Inspiration seems to come and go. I like blog hoping, and there are some wonderful cards out there. I get inspired, but when I go to put things on paper by myself I just seem to be lacking something.

Love these little Sarah Kay stamps. I must give them a plug. I cannot believe the crispness to the stamped image. I am totally impressed.. Can’t wait to get more of them, though I have a few I haven’t even used yet.

This card is oversized because I wanted to use the Sarah Kay image. I used Stampin’ Up paper as well as Lasting Impressions, The Paper Company and basic black. The image is colored using SU watercoloring pencils and Crayola watercoloring pencils. The little flower is from SU but I’m not sure where the brads came from. Also, I used a scalloped punch. The oval was achieved by using Creative Memories cutting system, or at least I believe that is what it is called. Glad to have the sketch to work with. Thank you for stopping by to visit, and come back often. Wishing you a nice day!
