Ahoy matey....

Good morning!  We have a new sketch today over at Retro Sketches!  First off, here is my card...

IMG_7092_edited-1

I colored something.  I know right?  I used Prismas and OMS in honor of my friend Suzanne, who I wish lived in Kansas because we talk and text enough she might as well.  :)  Anyway, I know she loves Prismas, so I had to pull them out.  I used to use them all the time but its been awhile.  I was also inspired to use this set because of Christina.  She posted about it recently, so again....I had to pull it out!  It'a pretty CAS but I am just excited that I actually colored something!  I keep staring at it thinking I should have added more to the white space.  Wondering if this card will end up as a redo.  LOL

OK enough babbling...here is the sketch...


I hope that you can play along with us this week!  Here is another challenge on top of this one....color something!  :)  Have a great weekend!
