Good morning Tuesday Morning Sketches fans!  Today I have another fun sketch to share.  Our sponsor this week is Designed2Delight and it is a judged challenge...which means there is a twist...kraft and black plus 1 color....  Sounds challenging, right?!

I will admit that I am not so good with color challenges!  This was a toughie for me, but then I remembered this wonderful DP that I had in my stash....  I could use pink (my favorite), stamp on the kraft, and add just a touch of black.  Whew; I felt such relief when I finally had a plan!  I also don't often use sentiments, so this was "out of the box" for me!

I simply stamped my sentiment, used a lot of diecuts, made some felt flowers, and added some crystals.  Voila'!  I like how this one turned out!

Sentiment: PTI Think Big Favorites 1
Ink: PTI Raspberry Fizz
Paper: PTI Raspberry Fizz, Kraft, and True Black, PTI Dotty Biscotti DP
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Jet"
Extras: Spellbinders Nestabilities, MFT Rolled Rose Die-namics Dies, PTI Raspberry Fizz Felt, Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will head over here to check out the rest of the DT's creations.  After that, I'd like to see what you come up with using the sketch and twist!
