It's such an honor to be in the company of these gals and I want to encourage you to visit their blogs to see what they've done with this week's Tuesday Sketch Challenge! You'll be amazed and inspired, I assure you!
Here they are . . . Mercy's Muses ~
As for my card, I don't often use the color red. I must have subconsiously used the color in Mercy's sketch photo. The flower vine is from the Stampin Up "Thoughts and Prayers" set and the sentiment "appreciate what is" came from a Hero Arts set. I've inked the vine stamp direct to the rubber with my Stampin Up watercolor markers to get the two colors. This is stamped on the naturals ivory cardstock and the edges have been sponged with Versafine vintage sepia ink. I've used an assortment of designer papers by K and Company and teamed them up with Stampin Up ruby red cardstock. I'm not so sure that I care for the green ribbon on this card, but I didn't have any red ribbon that was even close to coordinating. What do you think? I'm always open to suggestions.
Happy Stamping my friends and Smiles 2 U!
