A FIRST for Crazy4Challenges -- A Sketch

Welcome to the very first Crazy4Challenges challenge. Today's is a sketch created by Cindy Haffner, our challenge hostess for September. Here is the sketch:



I used a stamp by Innovative Stamp Creations for my image. The sentiment is also by the same company. I added the sun on my own with sponging and SU ink pads, then used my Copics to color, my Nesties to cut, emboss, and frame. The rest is pretty simple and clear to see.

Please be sure to go to the Crazy4Challenges Blog to see the creations of the team. We would love for you to play along with us. If you do, and upload to SCS, be sure to use the keyword C4C1.
