I'll be there when you call...whenever I fall at your feet...and you let your tears rain down on me...

Hey, y'all! Yep, I'm back again! I'm excited to be playing along again this month with the Skipping Stones Design Tuesday Sketch Challenge...this time as the Guest Sketch Artist! Each Tuesday in November I'll give you a brand new sketch to play with...I'd love for you to play along! Pretty please? *wink* So here goes...here's my first sketch:




And here's my card:




This was a quick little card (especially since I cheated and used the flower for my oval panel *wink*), but I love how elegant it turned out. I think it's thanks to the gorgeous background from Timeless Textures. I stamped it in Pear Pizzazz ink on Kraft cardstock, then sponged the edges with Crumb Cake & Early Espresso ink. I cut a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock and stamped the sentiment from Cancer Schmancer in Early Espresso before sponging and distressing the edges. I finished it off with a strip of Espresso cardstock punched with a Martha Stewart border punch, my gorgeous Prima flower, and some pearl flatbacks from Stamping Bella.

Here's a close-up shot:
