Freshly Made Sketches #99

Happy Wednesday!  It's time again for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!   The very talented Rita is our hostess this week and I love, love her sketch.  I had so many ideas of what I could do with the sketch, so I searched through my stamp sets for the perfect coordinating images.  When I got to Hope from Paper Smooches, I knew that was what I was looking for.  I got out my pink Copics and created this simple card:

I am no pro with my Copics, so it took a few stamped images and practice runs until I was happy with my results.  I definitely need to color more often!  There is something very soothing about it for me though I must look the sight - I always take off my glasses and get my nose right down to the paper.  Getting older is no picnic and I hate that my close-up vision isn't what it used to be.  Sigh.

Here is Rita's awesome sketch:

I know you are going to have fun with it!

Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the amazing creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.   I'd love to see your take on Rita's sketch!   

Reminder: please turn off comment verification on your blog.  We love to leave comments, but with so many great entries, it becomes very time consuming and difficult.  We don't want any card missing out on a little love!  :-)

And now for a little teaser:  Check in next week for a very special event - our 100th sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
