*Another New To Me Challenge Site*

I had a lot of fun playing yesterday, once I got myself focused and stopped allowing myself to get distracted by my computer or the TV. It surprises me that I am so easily distracted when doing something I enjoy.

Tracy posted a card on her blog a few days ago, a card following a sketch challenge she found on a blog I had never heard of. I loved her card so I decided to give it a shot myself. The blog is called Tuesday Morning Sketches and they've only been around for a few months. This is sketch #13

I love the look of black and white with a colour for a little punch. I almost always turn to pink or red, but decided I needed to do something different this time... so I used Dusty Durango instead.

And yes, I know that the flower image isn't centred... I did that on purpose, but realized after it was all put together that I should have either centred it or made it more off-centre. Oh well

Items used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Dusty Durango; black linen
*Images: Stampin' Up! Doodle This; Impress (sentiment); DeNami (swirl background)
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Dusty Durango; VersaFine Onyx Black
*Tools: Big Shot; Nestabilities; small and large Stampin' Up! oval punches
*Embellishments: black brads
