Sketch Challenge

Good Wednesday Afternoon!
This morning I had a couple of friends over to stamp but I struggled with my card and ended up scrapping what I had done and started fresh this afternoon...lol
This card is for the Sketch Challenge on SCS. I dug through my scrap pile and found this Tres Jolies DP. I was inspired to use Apricot Appeal after seeing Amy's card on her blog Pickled Paper Designs. I can't recall the last time I had used this colour....my best guess would be when we had a Colour Challenge on SCS...haha!
Stamps: Stampendous, Papertrey Birthday Basics; Cardstock: Apricot Appeal, WW and Tres Jolies DP; Inks: Adirondack Espresso; Accessories: Copic Markers, Nestabilities, Ticket Punch, Photo Corner Punch, Paper Piercer, Dimensionals
When I received the stamped images in the mail the other day I sat down and watercoloured quite a few of them. This morning I put this quick card together. Since it was already coloured I bet this card took no more than 5 minutes to create! Gotta love those ;) I spent a lot of time on the High Hopes site last night adding things to my shopping cart. So many great images and I LOVE that you can get them unmounted. Cheaper to buy and ship and much easier to store.
Stamps: High Hopes, Circle of Friendship; Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Barely Banana, Watercolour Paper and Sarah DP(retired); Inks: Black Stazon, Brocade Blue and Various SU! Markers; Accessories: Nestabilities, Aqua Painter, Dimensionals, Apricot Ribbon
Thanks for stopping by today!
I'm off to work on some SU! cards now. Have a fabulous evening!
