Thankful Thursday sketch on Instyle

InStyle stamps has started Thankful Thursdays - they will have a sketch challenge every week! This week the sketch challenge was GREAT! Sketch challenges usually get me out of my straight line ruts! I LOVE clean straight lines on cards.

For this one - I used Suzie Q. I ordered her soon after InStyle released their stamps. I got her QUICK! Less than a week to ship to the USVI - I was impressed!

I used BG Urban Prairie paper for the card. Suzie's shirt is paper pieced from the same page as the half circle. She was colored with copics. All pieces were distressed with my Ranger Adirondack Pitch black ink pad. Thank you was a Gina K stamp and cut out with my scalloped circle nestabilities. Ribbon is SU Regal Rose.

Hope everyone is having a GREAT Friday! I get to pick dh up at the airport tonight - he's only been gone for part of the week, but we miss him!
