Just Us Girls #118 - Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  Today is the first challenge for 2012 at Just Us Girls.  The first challenge of the month is our sketch challenge, and our fabulously creative Pam has given us this great sketch to work with. 
I decided that I wanted to color because I haven't done a lot of that lately.  These stamps have been sitting around for far too long.  This image is Winter Marci from La-La Land Crafts.  I picked it up at a stamp show over the summer.  I must have used about 20 copic markers on this image!  I haven't used that many in one sitting in a long time!  The dp is from My Mind Eye's Lost and Found Madison Avenue.  The flowers are Primas and the pearl flourish is from Want 2 Scrap (love those flourishes!).  The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps.  It was part of a kit from last year, so I'm not sure if it's still available.
Wait until you see the cards the girls created with this sketch!  They are all so different and so fabulous!  We have a new featured designer this month, too.  Here are the blogs you'll want to visit.
