Sketch Challenge

I made this card for Marie's Card Sketch Challenge . I had fun making this card although I always seem to be on the late side.

This card also doubles as one of the RAKs to be sent out (this one is for my mother).

The inside says " I could walk forever in my garden".

Stamp - Penny Black.

Paper - K&Company. SU whisper white. SU cardstock.

Ink - SU creamy caramel, close to cocoa and classic black.

Colored with Prismacolor pencils and oderless mineral spirits.

Accessories - may arts ribbon, stickles, stitching and computer for sentiments.

Thanks Marie for a Great Sketch!

I hope everyone is having a Great Day! Thanks for looking!!
