Sweet Pea Sketch

Getting an early start today - need to do a couple chores and then I will be meeting a friend of mine for some thrift store bummin and lunch. I have hardly seen Pat at all this summer - it has been a busy summer with the kiddos. Now that the kids are back in school I have some free time - yippee!!!
I finished off this card yesterday for this weeks challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers blog. Not only is it a weekly challenge but for the month of August they are also doing a month long blog candy contest for any entrants in the weekly challenges. Pop in here - for all the details (or click the Sweet Pea Stampers blog candy link in my sidebar).
This weeks challenge was a sketch.
I stamped this beautiful image onto gold sparkly paper from 'Paper Temptress' and colored her with prismacolor pencils.
I also used some of the gold paper as one of the layers.
The flourish was cut with a Tim Holtz die and sprayed with glimmer mist.
The centers of the flowers - I used chrystal laquer and some small beads.
All for today - need to vacume my pool before it turns green.....
Take Care
