...Farm Fresh Sketch By Mary

It's Farm Fresh Friday time at The Greeting Farm Blog, and this week our challenge is brought to us by our very own Mary Giles...A Sketch Challenge. I chose to use one of Marina's digital images called "Toby Cub", and colored him with Copic Sketch Markers. I paired him up with some patterned papers from the Just Dreamy paper pack by My Mind's Eye. Since I used this cutesy little image, I had to have an equally adorable I used one from the "Anya Says" set (pretty perfect, huh?). I added some stitching, piercing, and Silver Jumbo Eyelets to complete the card.

Now let's see what the other DT and Critter Crew members have up their sleeves for today's sketch:

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I'll see you again tomorrow with a card for the C4C challenge. Until then...

Papers: Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, PTI White, Just Dreamy DP (My Mind's Eye)
Inks: Black
Accessories: mat pack, paper piercer, sewing machine, circle piercing guide, copics, scissors, dimensionals, brads, distressing tool
