A Friendly Sketch

So, I don't know about you, but I REALLY think that SU knocked it out of the park with this new catalog. I haven't been this excited about my new stamps in who knows how long!! Don't get me wrong, I have always loved SU, and besides a FEW colors from PTI, and my addiction to Gina K.'s white cardstock, I am pretty loyal about paper and embellishments. Before I went to bed last night, I saw today's sketch challenge....I woke up at 5:30am DYING to stamp. For those of you that know me, I am mainly a nighttime stamper. Very rarely do I ever stamp something during the daytime. But once I got this card in my head, I had to make it. I am not sure that it was what I was planning on it looking like..but I still love it. I started with my Parisian Breeze paper and the Friends 24-7 stamp set. I colored the image with my SU markers and then sponged the edges. The flowers were stamped twice and then cut out and popped up. The ribbon is from the Valet ribbon Originals. I added a sentiment panel, but I think it is still close enough to the sketch to count...don't you? Of course, what would a card be without a ton of piercing and some yummy Chocolate Chip brads, so I had to add those too. Well, that is it for me now..thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
