Freshly Made Sketches 142

It is a beautiful, sunny day in the pacific northwest today. I am planning to head out to enjoy the sunshine as soon as our carpet install is finished. We've been in our house for 10 years and I have hated the carpet in the hallway and bedrooms since day one. There have always been other issues to deal with like replacing the roof and the windows, so the carpet replacement has been put off several times. It will finally be done today and I am so excited to have carpet that looks nice!

While I have been sitting around the house as the installers get the carpet put in, I took some time to create a card for a challenge. I love sketch and color challenges to help give me ideas for my stamping projects.  Today's card was made for the sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. You can check out all the inspiration here.

Here is the sketch by Jennifer B.:

My take on the sketch features the same stamp sets as the one I posted Saturday, but this card is stepped up a bit with coloring on the sentiment, more layering, and the pearls colored using the Old Olive medium Blendability marker. I really like being able to custom color my pearls and rhinestones with the Blendabilities!
