AMYRS62 sketch challenge- Do you smell carrots?

Amy Rysavy has challenges on her blog (Prairie Paper and Ink) every week but I don't usually participate. I am a faithful stalker ;) but don't often have time to play along. She makes great cards and I get a lot of color combo inspiration from her.

The sketch was super cute this week and I just got the new Porcelain collection from Basic Grey. Time to create!

This stamp from the new Cat's Pajamas release cracks me up. That sneaky rabbit!

I colored the image with my Koh-I-Noor pencils. I used gamsol on the sky to soften it up a bit. These pencils work amazingly well with gamsol. I am using it much more now that I have pencils that blend well with it. These pencils are also very inexpensive. You can pick up the whole set of 24 for $15.99 at the A Muse website. They are all pigment with no wood so they will last forever.

Anyway, back to my card. The flower is from The Angel Company. They have several new button and blossom sets in the spring magalog (magazine + catalog). These collections are so great that I just ordered the rest of them. :) Fun stuff.

The ribbon is from my retired stash of Close To My Heart organza ribbon. I think this color is Garden Green.

Enjoy! :)
