DCBD Challenge 123

I apologize for being MIA. We have been having the worst internet connection / computer problems. You know that commercial where the woman gets frustrated and throws her washing machine out the window, onto the front lawn? That is about where I am with my computer! Oh well. Before I lose this connection I should get on with my post...

It is Wednesday again and that means another Diva challenge. This week's challenge was a sketch. I tried to use some colors that I haven't used in a while. This flower comes from the Bloomin' Beautiful stamp set. I stamped the image in Jet Black Stazon and then colored with Earth Elements watercolor crayons and used a blender pen to set. the "Thank You" sentiment comes from the Fresh Cuts stamp set. I seem to revert back to the two sentiments in that set quite often. They are just small, script and elegant to me. The designer paper is from Candy Lane DSP.

Stamps: Bloomin' Beautiful, Fresh Cuts
Ink: Jet Black Stazon
Cardstock: Summer Sun, Old Olive, Whisper White, Candy Lane DSP
Accessories: Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Earth Elements watercolor crayons, blender pen, Boho Blossoms punch, circle rhinestone brads

Pop on over to the Diva Coffee Break Designs blog and see what the rest of the design team has come up with for this sketch. While you are at it, why don't you play along! You can simply upload your creation using "Mr. Linky" so we can see what you have come up with.
