Yes, I'm still here! (AMYRTFS2)

I'm so sorry it has been over a week since my last post! Life has gotten in the way. I weaned off a medication and the withdrawal made me very dizzy (among other things) and unable to craft! Now I am slowly getting back into the swing of things... just in time for Amy Rysavy's Friday Sketch Challenge over at Prairie Paper and Ink, which I am the guest sketch designer for this week! YEAH! Here is my sketch and my sample. I made this card larger than my usual 4.25 x 5.5 because it's a birthday card for my mom and I am enclosing a few 5 x 7 photographs. I made this card 5.5 x 7.25 to accommodate the photos. I used one of my new Ketto stamps, which I adore, and I used fairly new designer paper from Basic Grey's "Marrakech" line... I just love the colors of these papers! I recently splurged on several new stamps and papers, so be sure to check back to see my creations with those! I hope to get back on my plan to post every other day, or at least 2-3 times per week. We'll see how that goes! Anyway, here are the stats on this card:

Paper: Marrakech (Basic Grey); white cardstock (Mohawk 110 cover weight)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); watercolor pencils (Derwent); grey marker (Le Plume - Marvy)
Accessories: circle and classic scallop dies (Nestabilities); mini flower punch (dollar bin at Michael's), 5/8 circle punch (EK Success); flowers (Prima, Basic Grey, Hero Arts); adhesive rhinestones (Kaisercraft); clear rhinestone circle brads; dimensional adhesive foam dots; sponge
