Latisha's Sunday Sketch #1

Latisha created her first card sketch, so here is my card using Latisha's Sunday Sketch #1.


I turned the sketch on its side, and used a wonderful image from Unity Stamps that Latisha sent to me. I colored in the image with colored pencils, and I used gamsol to blend. For the rest of the card, I dug into my paper scraps! The patterned paper scrap is DCWV Pocket Full of Posies, and it has some sparkle. I used my threading water punch for the scallops, and I added three clear dew drops. Easy and fun!

Well, I do believe I need to cut the grass today. It's my least favorite summertime chore. After that though, maybe I'll get some crafty time. The girls are done with their library t-shirts that they designed. I'll take some photos and show you how they turned out! Have a great Sunday, and thanks for stopping by!

Oh wow Carol - what a gorgeous card! I agree about cutting the grass - we have 1.5 acres to cut - it takes all morning! Can't wait to see the photos from the girls projects!
