Get Sketchy # 62 Challenge


I decided to join the fun as soon as I saw it at Hero Arts Tweet about Get Sketchy Challenge (see here)!So here it goes...
thank you
I stamped the thank you sentiment on the Wilton paper doily and then added Basic Grey paper for the trim and borders. I used Tim Holtz distress inks for the color combo
thank you
--Velvet Victoria and Spiced Marmalade. I used a big strips of pearls for the accent. It's something that I haven't done before. Is there such thing as "....too many blings" ? Anyhow I think I like it.
Added post note: this card did win the Get Sketchy Challenge (see here)! Yippee!
