Gettin' sketchy at ATS

Hello and good morning!

Once again we've got a brand new Wednesday challenge over at ATS and this week it is a sketch created by Rachel! I gotta say... this one was very much within my comfort zone so my resulting card came together super quick! Hopefully there are no moans and groans when you see that I've used more of my Stella and Rose scraps... yes I'm back to that, LOL! There is no help for me I tell ya. Well maybe the cure for a paper rut is getting new papers... hmmmm... I like the sound of that! ;)
So, I went with Sweetheart Birgitta for my main image because I really liked the way that she was sitting and thought she would look nice seated along the bottom of that center panel. And look at that, she sure does! LOL
I actually kept the embellishing to a minimum with just the single flower and a bit of faux stitching to pull it all together. Another sweet and simple card that I am totally loving how it came together.

So if you would like to get sketchy with us don't forget that every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Super cute, Amy! I don't think you'll ever hear a groan from us when you create a card, no matter which supplies you use! Your cards are always gorgeous! I just love Brigitta's hair -- I must get those Copics in my collection :).

Oh Amy, she looks simply adorable on your Stella & Rose paper. I love how your card turned out. Too sweet! lol...I have to laugh as I am in a rut with my dp as well, so yesterday I purchased some of the blue from MME Stella&Rose. Of course I just had to grab two new Zodiac's from your new stamps. Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa

Absolutely adorable! Love it!

So pretty and sweet - your coloring is always perfection. I know what you mean with the MME pads-apparently they are going to have to pried out of my cold dead hands before I stop using them.
