Guest Designer at High Hopes

High Hopes sketch - Challenge 188

How exciting!  This is the card I created as a guest designer for the challenge this week at High Hopes - so appropriate, as sketches are probably my favorite challenge - nearly every one of my cards has a sketch challenge as the starting point.   I used a previous prize from High Hopes - Country Garden.  The pinks are an inspiration from Stamping Sensations.  Coloring is by Prismas.  Another favorite technique is to sponge embossing (CB Happy Birthday folder) with chalk.  Both DP patterns are by My Minds Eye.  Some butterflies (Marvy) complete the card.  It is 4.5 x 6.25, since it is a large image.  This card is already on its way to my sister-in-law, who enjoys her garden a lot.
