STAMP SOMETHING - SKETCH SOMETHING

Happy Friday all!! It is that time again, one of my fave events of the week - the Stamp Something challenge This week we are spotlighting our extremely talented DT member Emily who is fabulous at making sketches and creating beautiful cards!! So, this week we have a sketch done by her and the challenge is to use the sketch she created.. And, it is a WONDERFUL sketch!! Wanna see? Just head on over to the Stamp Something site and check it out as well as the work of the other DT gals who will blow you away with their talent!! I enjoyed doing this sketch and it will be a favorite of mine that I know I will pull out a lot more in the future. I will miss Emily but since we are blogging buddies, I know I will still get to chat and see her wonderful talent! So, deets of the card: I used some Basic Grey Gypsy paper which I just love because it has all my favorite colors in it, primarily the oranges, lol! The image is actually a digital image I received from the Scrapbook Site PaperPopsicles, and is the first time I have ever used one, but it sure won't be my last because it was cool to be able to size it the way I wanted and just print it out. The rest of my card is all SU! and the recipe can be found below!! And, since tonight is my anniversary, I will be going to make myself presentable and have a really nice dinner out with my man tonight! Enjoy your weekend, I will be back tomorrow with a fun scrapbook layout to share!
