a sketch challenge. . . .

on the Stamplorations blog:


Here is my card:



I recently purchased some of Shery's stamps, and decided to use these two for this challenge.  I used Derwent inktense pencils to watercolor the present and added glossy accents to the ribbon and bow.  I also brushed some wink of Stella over the edge of the gift box.  The embossing folder is from Spellbinders, sequins from Michaels and the pattern paper is from my stash. 

This card will be sent over to the SSS anything goes challenge, for my last entry this week. 

Hope you are having a good day!
