Feeling Sketchy....in Purple!!!!


(If you are here for the Creative Design Boutique blog hop, please go to the previous post below, although you could take a moment here first....lol!!!)

I am very happy that Roxie used one of my previous cards as today's Sketch Challenge example. That made this sketch challenge card easy for me to make......as the second time is the charm. No thinking involved...just change the image and colors and...voila!!!....a card is born!!

The image used is called Harlequin Flower by Innovative Stamp Creations. Betsy, the company owner, has so many beautiful floral deeply etched red rubber sheets which she pours herself. If you haven't ever stopped in at her online store, please be sure to give her a visit. She really does have some awesome stamps. AND...she is just the sweetest person.

Well, no big story on this one....you can pretty much see what I did. The designer paper is from my heavy-duty scrapbooking days and is not marked. I am going to be sad when all the scraps of this paper are gone. Love the colors and patterns.
