Retro Sketches #11

Happy Saturday!  I can't believe we are at the weekend already!  I am setting this to post at about 8am.  I am probably garage saleling right now!  Our town has a city wide once a year and so we got out super early to find some deals.  Not that I need to bring someone else's junk into my house, but you know....

So this week's sketch is brought to you by Tracy Ercole.  HERE is her original card.  Here is my card based on Tracy's sketch...


I used my homemade foam clouds for the background with a little MFT grass.   Then some CSS clouds out of some fun patterned paper.  I added a sentiment in the place of the bow from the sketch.  Here is this weeks sketch...

Hope you all have a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping!
