SBS9 MONTHLY SKETCH AND COLOR CHALLENGE!

Here it is, Wednesday again - hump day, whoohoo! So, today I am going to share a card that is for two challenges hosted by my SBS9 sistahs - the sketch and the color challenge. The color challenge this month is hosted by Louise and the colors are green and blue. The sketch is hosted by Tracy and is fabulous so make sure you check it out! I made a square card because well, I love square cards - LOL! I used my One of a Kind stamp set as it is one of my favorites and I have not pulled it out in a while. This was a really fun sketch and I see myself using it again so thanks Tracy for such a wonderful sketch this month! As for my color choices, since I had to use green and blue, I decided to go all out with it and I am pretty happy with how it turned out! I will leave you with the card recipe and as always, if you have any questions, please holla!!! My family is still sick but thankfully I have not caught it! It is a stomach bug, ughhhh! the worst! So, here is hoping I can stay healthy....I think I will just hide in my stamp room until it is all over - *wink* Have a wonderful day!
