Challenge #8 is a sketch......

...over at the Sarah Kay weekly challenge blog!! It is a great sketch to work with!! I decided to use this one and so did a few others (LOL)!! Make sure you head over there and see the beautiful cards by the rest of the DT!! All the details in the cards are fantastic!!!
For the mat I ran it through the cuttlebug then sanded it!! I love the way that looks especially when it is a darker piece of paper. The script on the background and the flowers is from Paperbag Studios. Sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps. You notice alot of my sentiments are from there, that is because the stampsets ALWAYS have a great selection of them with each set!! I just love that!!
I also wanted to color very light and kinda muted!! From last week's challenge I noticied a few people who did that for the challenge and I think it looks pretty!! Something different to try!! Thanks..... (That is why I love looking at all the different things you girls come up with!!

Paper: Crate Paper Sweet Branch ~ Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Cardstock ~ CTMH
Ink: Archical Jet black and prismapencils with gamsol
Accessories: Flowers ~ Prima, brads ~ Micheals


Well thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a fantastic day!! We are getting ready for school!! Tomorrow is the first day!! I have one going to school all day for the first time and a kindergartener riding the bus for the first time!!! It is going to be a "sentimental" day !!!
