Good Friday morning...the weekend is almost here!  I liked the sketch for Wednesday's SCS Sketch Challenge, so I thought I'd play along.  It took me 2 days to finish this simple card...between doing this and that, I was able to steal a few minutes here and there.  I will definitely use this sketch again; there were some really beautiful cards in the gallery to use as inspiration.

My little chick is colored with pencils and highlighted with a black gel pen and some glitter.  I've had the sentiment border set for years and this is the first time I've used one of them...I thought this one was perfect.  It's also colored with pencils and highlighted with a bit of glitter.  I like the contrast of the stark white background and the muted designer papers.

Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Cajun Craze, Fancy Pants Designs DP
Embellie: Embossing Arts Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I combined the sketch with a few other challenges:

Charisma Cardz: Things With Wings
Crafting For All Seasons: Things With Wings
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge: Children
Crazy For Challenges: Anything Goes, With a Fall Twist
Inky Impressions: For a Child
Love To Create: Things With Wings
Papertake Weekly: A Hazy Shade of Autumn
The Crazy Challenge: Spots or Stripes

Thanks for stopping by; enjoy your day!
