Sketch Saturday - Sketch #323

Another Sketch Saturday for all of you sketch fans this week! Alex is our sketch designer and Bunny Zoe is the sponsor.

I have with another card from Penny Black's stamp set, Dahlias.  This is a different stamp from the set than was used for the card I posted a couple of weeks ago.  This time I used watercolor paper, embossing powder and water based inks to give a watercolor look to my card.

I bought the set when it was available from The Paper Trail, a wonderful online shop that is an especially fabulous resource for Canadian card makers.  Chelsea is having a clearance sale, so it's worth popping over for a look.

Speaking of "popping over" - you won't want to miss the great inspiration the Sketch Saturday DT has for you this week.   Take some time to relax and play along with us this week!
