Congratulations, Maggie! You have thirty (30) days to claim your candy, or I will have to choose another winner. Please email your full name, shipping address, and choice of set from the Occasions Mini Catalog to mkstampin74@bellsouth.net. Thanks for all your wonderful advice concerning my watermark...I finally knew what I had to do! I took all of your advice and came up with the one shown on the card below...what do you think?
This was my submission for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try from this past Saturday. I started with with a Riding Hood Red Cardstock base, and matted each additional layer with Baja Breeze Cardstock. The focal panel was a combination of Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, and So Saffron Cardstock. It was also pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The image was from The Greeting Farm's "Shepherd Boy" set, and the sentiment was from the SU set "Thank You Kindly". The patterned papers were all from the Slumber Party Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. They are textured, and they are simply luscious! The image was colored with Copic Sketch Markers, and the only embellishments I used were some Silver Brads.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you all back here tomorrow with a sketch card for the Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge #10. I would love for you to join us. I am designing the sketches, so I always drop by to see what everyone has created! Until later...
