Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #39

I really needed a quick and simple thank you that I could whip up in just a few minutes. So I decided to use this weeks sketch to do it. Here is the sketch....



And here is the card. Simple but I think it works. What do you think, too simple?



This is definitely one of those card that looks much better in person. The colors kind of of blend on the picture but they are more defined in real life. I would love to have you play along this week. I so enjoy seeing all the different card created with just one sketch. It is incredible how different they all look! All you have to do to play along is create a card and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your card so that I can share it with everyone on here too! Can't wait to see what you come up with. If you post on SCS please use the keywords TSSC39. Here are the details for my simple card....

Stamps: So Many Scallops 2008 SAB
Paper: Soft Sky and Fall Flowers dp - both retired
Ink: Soft Sky and Old Olive
other: Scallop punch, 1 inch punch, ribbon and mini bling stones.

Can't wait to see yours! And don't forget to check back tomorrow to see what the other girls do with the sketch. It is NEVER disappointing! I will be a bit late posting since the kids are off school and I will be going to get pumpkins with my cub scout den during the day. So keep checking back. Hope you have a great Columbus Day!

Forgive me MJ, I emailed my link to you and I don't even know if it is correct. I realize I was doing the wrong thing. I'm the one who can work her blog right, but you'd think I could post, huh?. BTW, it's nice to see the face behind the sketches. I attempted #39, but it's on SCS (blog issues is why) I am attaching the link. I hope you like it. BTW, I always enjoy your music selections.

I don't the one in the email is correct.

It's me again...sorry.
I managed to get my card into my blog (in record time, I might add, smile).
So if you'd prefer to find it that way, here it is. http://froglilly.blogspot.com/
I'm going away now.
