365 Cards Sketchy Sunday Day 337

365 Cards has a fabbie sponsor this week! The Stamping Boutique was kind enough to give the DT a bunch of super cute digi images to play with. Here is Pam's sketch. This is a wonderful sketch, but it was hard to use with the digi image, but I did my best!

I used the AJ the Romantic image from The Stamping Boutique. I tried to at least get the feel of the sketch, but you can see I went way out in the weeds with this one!

I made a 5x5 card and used Basic Grey Sugar Rush (6x6 pad) paper. The large scallops were cut using a EK Success punch.

I cut my image with a Nestie circle. The card felt a bit out of balance, so I added the little tag with a greeting (CTMH).

I colored the image with my new Koh-i-Noor pencils and OMS. I may have used a few EK Success or Crayola pencils too...hard to tell. I found the Koh-i-Noor pencils at Michael's the other day. They had a set of 24 and with a coupon I got them for $8. They are fantastic pencils. And they blend very well with the OMS (odorless mineral spirits).

I hope you go check out the cutie pie images at The Stamping Boutique. Come back tomorrow for my 365 Cards Monday challenge.

ETA: This card also fits the Challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ who asked for an image of a child, but not a baby card.
