Sketch Saturday - Sketch #388

We're back with a new sketch for you at Sketch Saturday.  This one was perfect for the leaf I embossed on watercolor paper (a year ago) and added the embossed sentiment to for a sympathy card.  I colored the leaf with a variety of old SU! markers and watercolor brush.  I decided to keep the card CAS, so back in the scrap drawer, I noticed a discarded embossed card back, and used the debossed side of embossing folder in the background.

Stop by the SS Blog to check out the DT inspiration and play along for a chance to win this week's prize from sponsor, Bunny Zoe Crafts.
