KLSNS36 - Jodi's Sketch Challenge

Hey there, readers!  It's Saturday already again . . .
boy where does the week go?!  I have been so busy it's crazy, so I guess that is why it flew by so fast.  I am glad it's closer to my Sunday off though :) and we are expecting 3 new crias on my parents' farm this weekend, so I am hoping and praying I will get to see a healthy, bouncing cria birth (fingers crossed they are girls).

Well, since it is Saturday, do you know what that means at KL Stampin N Scrappin's DT blog?  Yep, another GREAT challenge!!  :)  Fun, fun with Jodi this week as she challenges us all to take a look at her sketch and give it a try.  Stop by the DT blog to see it.

Here is my card for the sketch . . .

This is a new stamp that is now carried in the KL Stampin N Scrappin store from C. C. Designs SweetNovember Mermaid series called Pearl Tidepool and Seamoor.  It was colored with Copics, accented with white gel pen and sparkled a bit with Stickles. The cardstock is Stampin Up's razzleberry, cameo coral, baja breeze and a touch of yellow/apricot if you will for accents (I had seen this color combo a while back at SCS but had not been able to participate w/o having the cs on hand).  Well, now that I have it, I just had to try it out. I couldn't seem to work in all the colors into this sketch by layer, but I did add them with the yellow flowers and baubles as accents.  The colors aren't usually ones I would reach for, but I truly love these colors together, so I will probably give this color combo a try again soon!!  Now, if only my panels were all the same size. Guess I had them off a little bit when I cut them. : ( Geez.

Well, for more lovely creations, stop on by the KL SNS DT blog for a look!  You will be glad you did.  Participate in our challenge there for some fun and maybe a surprise gift from Kelly *wink*  If you upload your photo at one of the on-line web sites, please use the keyword/tag KLSNS36 so we can find you.

Edited:  I sat here working (cough, cough) and realized that my card really could use something under that circle and off to the side a bit . . . so I was thinking . . . that  new sentiment stamp that I got in the mail this week should be perfect for this image!! :)  Whatcha think?  (ohh, and the lovely flowers are from my parents -- just because -- isn't that sweet?!)  xoxo Mom and Dad

Inky Hugs and Happy Stampin!
