Guest Designer at Card Patterns

     I'm so excited to be able to share this card I made as a Guest Designer for Card patterns. If you'll remember back a few weeks, I posted a little peach and green ballerina. Well, that little sweetie won me a Top Six and Guest Designer spot for Card Patterns.

     The card is based on sketch #113 and I decided to go with another Lili of the Valley stamp.  This is another first inking and it's colored with Copics.  I've used some more of my fantastic K and Company Julianne paper pad.
     Here's the sketch.  It's a great one by Nina Brackett, and I'm sure they'd love for you to play this weeks challenge.
