mojo monday. . . .

sketch # 381 challenge:


My card:


This stamp is from There She Goes and was in a prize package I won from Vera Yates in her Seasons Givings giveaway.  I am not one to do "cute" very often, but I really enjoyed coloring these little girls, using my Prismacolor pencils. The green background panel was created with distress inks using a brayer.  It looks cool in real life.  The MFT stitched circle STAX die and the PTI scalloped border die completed the sketch.  (I know, I am VERY literal when it comes to sketches.)  The patterned paper was from another giveaway and the tiny gems are from Recollections.  

Also sending this to Word Art Wednesday for their anything goes challenge, and the Die Cut Divas as their challenge is also anything goes.

Have a great day!
