CPS Sketch

Hi all! We just got back from a week-long vacation at the beach...ahhhhh, it was heaven! Now that I'm back though, I'm anxious to hunker down with a cup of coffee this morning and go blog hopping to see what I missed while I was away.

Our Craft Lounge is sponsoring this week's CPS Sketch. Here's the card I made for it...



The stamps are from the new Art of Nature set. The image is colored with Copic markers (numbers are in the supply list at the end of my post) and I added some Stickles to the centers of the flowers. The pearls in the trio of die-cut flowers were colored with RV13 and YR21 Copics. The black scallop mat is up on foam tape.

Have a great day!
