A Limelight Sketch


Hello and happy Sunday! This is my second post for today, I was able to enjoy some quiet time in the craft room this morning while my family was still asleep. I may not be a 'morning person' but I do like the stillness of the morning.
Anyway, I made this card for the Limelight Papercrafts sketch challenge, in which they also called for a tag. I fashioned my "tag" out of a scrap piece of paper, and I think it serves its purpose.
I chose to use this newly released stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps called A Season of Wonder. A set of 5 for only $7.99. Definately a great value. I was inspired by that fantastic piece of dp from the Basic Grey Origins collection. It is a square 6x6 like you would expect, I just trimmed around the scalloped edges giving it more of a special look. Kind of reminds me of a tapestry.
Details:
Stamps: A Season of Wonder (CDS)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Grey Origins
Ink/Markers: Momento Tuxedo Black, Cherry Go-Round Tombow Marker (CDS)
Tools/Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Cherry Go-Round Ribbon (CDS),
 Very Vanilla Brad

Thank you so much for stopping by! I would love to hear what you think!

Gorgeous! I love the simplicity of the image not being colored, and the background paper really makes it pop. Great take on the sketch. . .I've been wanting to do that one too ;D
