Get Well ...with a sketch challenge

Hi All!

Hope you're having a great Wednesday. I just spent the day with my good friend Erin and her girls. The kids got to play and we got to stamp. We also traded off some images too, which was great! It was a fun day all around!

I received some new stamps in the mail yesterday and one of them was perfect for the challenge over at Whiff of Joy Challenges. This week's challenge is a sketch, I seem to be taking part in a lot of sketch challenges lately, I suppose it's because they help get the mojo flowing! Here's the sketch, made by Katharina....

I loved that this one used a circle for the main image. I got a set of circle Nestabilities from my mom for Christmas and I haven't used them much. This was a perfect opportunity!
I used my new Willow with Umbrella stamp and colored her with Copics. I chose to go with a purple and green color combo. This was the challenge color combo from last week's Whiff challenge and I just loved the colors together. I think the black accents really make the colors pop too!

The final touches on this card are some striped ribbon, a flower brad and sticky rhinestone, and little bubble stickers for the raindrops. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. And speaking of Whimsy, there's still time to enter the guest DT call for February, check out the details here!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great night! Happy Stamping! :)
