Sketch Saturday - Sketch #326

Happy Saturday, Sketchers!  Our own DT member, Lizy is sponsoring this week's challenge with a gift pack from Stampin' Up!  Lizy is an Independent Demonstrator, so I am sure she has some fabulous things in store for this week's winner.

Lizy created the sketch, too.  I had fun with it, even though my card didn't turn out like I was originally picturing in my head.  I have been playing around with the faux watercolor technique lately.  Part of me wants to break down and buy a set of watercolors rather than making due with my SU! watercolor markers, inks and my limited selection of Distress Inks.   It would probably be better to invest a little money on the small Distress Inks using coupons from Michaels!   We'll see what happens and how long I practice impulse control!

My card uses one of the Lil' Inkers Designs Stitched Rectangle Mats, their Stitched Oval Mats, a crocheted flower my SIL made, an old felt flower center from SU! and their French Script stamp for the background.  The main image is called Jar Bouquet from Stampendous.  Take a look at the variety of ways the Sketch Saturday DT used Lizy's sketch here.
