Playing in Paradise #72 - Sketch Time!

PPC #72
Yep, it's official. I have gone over to the dark side - the sketchy side. I played with sketches enough that I began to like them, and have fun with them. Crazy! It's Allison's turn to host this week over at Playing in Paradise, and she's given us this fun sketch to create with. Still working on thank you cards (surprise!) so of course that's what I went with for my card:
Supplies: Papers from Basic Grey "Plumeria;"
vintage buttons from BG "Plumeria;"
sentiment sticker from Doodlebug;
Cicely Mary Barker decoupage illustration from Colorbok
Each week our winner gets a great prize (different every week!) and is invited to play along in a future challenge as a guest designer...this week my friend Barb is joining us, so make sure you say hello!
xoxo,
Jessi

This is beautiful. I have a love / hate relationship with them too! I usually alter them just cause! Ha! Need my own spin! You did great!

Gasp!! You've become a sketch lover??? How could you?!?

Dig those papers especially the orange stripy one. Is that herringbone? Can't keep my patterns straight...
