Sending smiles

Still loving the sketch challenge at Retro Sketch ! Here is this week's sketch:

I decided to also use the latest color combo from CR84FN .

I pulled out an under-loved set, Bitty Background Blocks and the pinked square die for this card. The background was created with the Sunrise impression plate.


The sentiment is from another set that I hardly use, Little Labels. I used Royal Velvet cardstock and ink, Simply Chartreuse and Enchanted Evening cardstock, and a green and blue A Muse Studio ink (still getting used to their names, but I LOVE how well they stamp!).

Thanks for taking a look!

This is just so dramatic and pretty. Love the purples and green together, and that background is just so striking on royal velvet.
