Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Spring Flowers Challenge.  I thought for sure Spring was finally here, according to the calendar it is, but for the next week our temp won't even get above 40!

This weeks Bloggers Challenge is a Sketch, but before I share the sketch, I  wanted to let you know that Bloggers Challenge will be moving to it's own blog soon!  I've been busy doing some behind the scenes work setting up the blog and getting things organized, and if things go as planned, the blog should be up and running by June, just in time for the Bloggers Challenge 4 year anniversary!

I used images from the new Wild West set (thanks Sue!), and used the sentiment in place of the small circles on the sketch.  The Sky panel is embossed with a Texture Fades Folder and sponged with Chocolate Ink.


Details:
Stamps - Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Wild West
Ink - Chocolate
Card Stock - Soft Sky, Vanilla, Chocolate
Other - Hemp, Sponge Dauber, Texture Fades Folder, Hemp, Stars, Big Shot, Cosmo Cricket Wanted, Spellbinders

Here's this weeks sketch, feel free to rotate it or change the circle to another shape.  If you'd like to play along with this weeks Bloggers Challenge, please link back to this post on your blog and mention you created your card for the Bloggers Challenge Sketch Challenge.  Please add your link using the Link Tool below.  Just a note on the link tool, your link should be a direct link to your Bloggers Challenge Post, use your name as the Title.  Please do not link to cards that were created prior to the challenge.  Entries not linking properly will be removed.

Have a great weekend!
