SC171





This will be a fast post! I just finished up a stamp class and am a bit tired. I made this card for The Sketch Challenge this week. My springboard was Ila's card from the challenge. I loved how she stamped her background paper....well ok, I loved everything about it. I looked at hers and came up with him.
recipe:
stamps: High Hopes images, Papertrey sentiment
Paper: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Chatterbox DP, whisper white, Old Olive.
Ink: Ranger distress: broken china, SU Old Olive and Basic Black
Other: Faber-Castel and Prismacolor color pencils, OMS, Twinkling H2O's.

Next I would like to thank: Beate
for the nomination of the Pico Award

for the You Cheer me Up Award.
I feel very honored that these ladies would think of me for it. They are all themselves very talented ladies. I am now supposed to nominate 5 others. So I shall pick:
