Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #40

Good morning! I'm back with another card to share with you today. I tried to crank out a few this weekend so the blog wouldn't be completely silent all week. It's going to get pretty quiet around here the later it gets in the week... I have to pack up all my stamping stuff for the big move, and it will probably be a day or two before I have it all set up in my new place. Though, it might be one of the first things I unpack so that I have something to do to de-stress! lol

I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch to help this card along. Since the mojo wasn't really flowing (yesterday's VLV card, ugh...), I decided this was definitely a case for my favorite dp. My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus line to the rescue! I love, love, love the colors in this dp and it always makes beautiful cards. Since I only have this one piece from this line, I had to create my other little dp panels. I stamped some polka dots onto Sahara Sand cardstock for a soft background.

I also added a few pearls to the branch image and one in the middle of the bow. I decided to take a nod from Mercy and turn the sketch sideways to accomodate my image... I don't really have that many tall and skinny images.... something to work on, I guess. :)

Thanks for another fantastic sketch, Mercy!! I had so much fun playing along again this week!

Have a wonderful Monday!
