Inkspirations Sketch Challenge {13}

Hi there!! It's Friday, which means it's time for another Inkspiration Challenge. Today.... Keesh has set a SKETCH challenge for you... and who doesn't LOVE a good Sketch Challenge!!!

Here is the card I came up with:-

Here is the Sketch to play along with:-

I've used Regal Rose, Always Artichoke, Choc Chip and Very Vanilla as my colours today.... and a delicious combo they are too.

I started with some Regal Rose and to that added a layer of Always Artichoke which I sponged around the edges with Choc Chip and also added some Faux Stitching with my Choc Chip marker.
I cut some squares using my Scallop Square punch in Regal Rose and to those added some squares of Au Chocolat (retired) DSP... sponged the outside of those too.... hmmmm it would appear that I've been on somewhat of a 'SPONGING Frenzy' with this card... hahaha... I'm not usually one to do a lot of sponging, but I quite like it!!!! LOL
The main image is stamped on Very Vanilla and mounted again onto some Regal Rose... and yep you guessed it... MORE sponging. The stamp set I used is Live Like you Mean it ( Hostess Set) and I've used Regal Rose and Always Artichoke ink. I used my slot punch to cut a slot in the Vanilla card before adding some Choc Chip Ribbon and to that a wee touch of Kraft taffeta ribbon. The sentiment is from Sweet Little Sentiments (Hostess Set) and is stamped in Regal Rose onto Vanilla... yep more sponging and then cut using my Word Window punch.... what on earth did I do with out that punch for so long????
