2 Sketches 4 You #45

I thought it would be fun to do a 2 Sketches 4 You challenge this week. I really liked the sketch, and thought it would be perfect for some of my new Webster's Pages I got at CHA (if you missed the video about this you can catch it here). These papers are so think I really like them & apparently Maddie does too... she's trying to eat them as I type. Once I finished the card I realized this was perfect for the current Cardvarks Challenge as well! Two days in a row...

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:
I'm in love with these two sets that I got to ink up for the first time tonight.

Pattern Paper: Your Life. Beautiful. (Webster's Pages)
Stamps: Very Vintage Labels No. 1 (WaltzingMouse), On the Desk (Cornish Heritage Farms), Big and Bold (Papertrey Ink)
Card Stock: Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Ribbon: Black Linen Thread, Cream Crochet (May Arts)

Don't forget about this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge! The Traveling Mama's shop is some serious inspiration!

Charlene has done it again! She's been inking up You're Dandy and you've got to see it. So cute.

*On an other Note* I am very interested in the book you are reading....{A year living Biblically} Is is good? Is it candid or stern? I would love to hear about it.
