SSSC62 Just Because

Good Sunday Morning Peeps!!! Time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!

I am super excited about this sketch because Karen chose a card of mine to base the sketch on. You can see my original card here.

This is the sketch:

The base of my card is rose red card stock. I followed that with certainly celery and then pretty in pink card stock. It is very hard to believe that I used NO DS paper on this one.

My original card had a large tag for the focal point and I guess I couldn't break that style because I made this one the same. The main image is from the SU stamp set "Close as a Memory". I inked it up with my markers in rose red, pretty in pink and certainly celery and then used my aqua painter to mix the colors around a bit. The sentiment comes from the retired "Best Yet" stamp set.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:
