Freshly Made Sketches #219 & Sweet Pea!

Happy Monday folks!  Starting this week out with Freshly Made Sketches 219 ... Cindy has given us a really classic sketch this week:

Plenty of room to play with this one, right?  I wanted to create a special thank you card for a very generous friend ... Cindy's sketch works the charm!

SSS Roses for you; Ki Doilies paper; Picked Raspberry and Dusty Concord & Shabby Shutters inks

Combining a little Distress ink water-coloring with a special PPP Sweet Pea mix sequins was a very good idea, right?  A lovely mix of colors with a very darling little sweet P. in mind, designed by Lisa Elton!  Thank you, Lisa ... what an honor to win my very own little package!  [fun plans for playing with that darling die today, too!]

=]  Michele
