...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #55 (MTSC55)

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It's sketch challenge time again, and as you already know, each month a "Guest Muse" is featured, and they create samples for each sketch during their month. This month's lucky lady is none other than my sweet friend and faithful challenge participant, Vicki Burdick of It's A Stamp Thing! I fell in love with her use of patterned papers and colors...she has such a clean and crisp style!

Now it's time for you all to get to know a few things about her...in her own words:

"Hi yall! My name is Vicki Burdick, and I live in Missouri. I have been following and playing along with Mercy's sketches almost from day 1, and I am so honored and humbled to have asked to be her Guest Muse this month!
I am married to a super guy, and we celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary this past fall. We have one child (a daughter who is 23)...we also have several cats and one little pup.
I started stamping several years ago when I went to an SU workshop with a friend. I was hooked immediately! I started a blog a couple of years ago, and love to participate in a variety of challenges on SCS and throughout blog land. When I'm not stamping I enjoy cooking, reading, and hanging out with friends and family...I love to laugh and have a good time! I am so looking forward to playing alongside Mercy and her fabulously talented Muses!"

Now for this week's Tuesday Challenge #55:
My Sample (I am so notorious for flipping sketches...even my own! LOL!):
Vicki Burdick's Sample:
Now let's see what the other Muses have created for our viewing pleasure today:
Now it's your turn! Create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and link your creation below in Mister Linky. Be sure to use the keyword MTSC55 when uploading to a public gallery! I also have a surprise for one lucky participant this week! A random winner will receive a Verve Stamps set of their choice for FREE! I will announce the winner along with next Tuesday's Sketch Challenge.

Good Luck & Happy Stamping!

Mercy this was an awesome sketch, but yet I wouldn't expect anything else from you. Your card, with all the bright colors, and beautiful butterflies is just gorgeous and makes me wish for Spring especially when it is so cold here. Vick's card is just sensational. Love her colors, the paper, the border punch and just the whole flippin card. You both rock!!! Hugs.
