Hello Again for FFC It's Sketch Time

Hello and welcome to my blog, wow been 10 days since my last post. Only one thing happened while I've been gone our trip to Gettysburg, PA for the Minneapolis Moline Corresponder, Inc. (MMCI) Winter Convention. WOW what a show, but you'll see that in the near future while I make a few layouts of the show and the sightseeing. Speaking of sightseeing I went and investigated one local scrapbook store OMgosh! this store was fantastic! Lots of papers related to Gettysburg that I can't wait to play with and they also have some for the Flight 93 National Memorial too that we saw a few years ago that I been wanting to scrap and now have the right papers I'm thinking to scrap with. So now that I uploaded the pictures to my computer of the weekend need to decide how I'm gonna handle 893 pictures! yep that is right that is what I said! Lots to decipher and decide what to print and not to print (luckily probably a third are reference photos for some of the other pictures.
So enough about what I was doing and lets get to the Funday Friday project for this week. It's Sketch Time this week for Funday Friday over at Jo's Scrap Shack our sponsors this week are: Little Blue Button Stamps and Bugaboo Stamps. I used Little Blue Button Stamps: Watering Plants Ivy for my card today:
and here is the sketch:

I stayed within the look of the sketch other than moving the bow down and the opposite side of the sketch. Such a fun sketch to use too. I used my current counterfeit kit for my card and brought in the silver chrome Viva pearl pen for the water and flower center on the stamp. I colored the stamp with both Spectrum Noir markers and Bic markers.
 I used the purple vellum in my kit for the Spellbinders Lacey Circles cut and then cut the stamp out with the Standard circles large cut. The purple and gold color combination is my favorite :)
 I used 3 Twenty Crafts: Strike a Pose stamp set for my sentiment that I stamped with memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of doily scrap pattern paper that was in a past kit. I used a flower stiker from a MS pack (so glad I added this pack to this month's kit :) and the AC twine. A super fun card to make :)
