Vacation

Hi again!  I'm back with another card I created for this week's challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions.  The theme is anything goes and the optional twist is to use "inks and such".  My card is also for Friday Sketch Challenge #24.  I'm slowly making my way through the projects I wanted to do!

Here is FS-24:


Here is my card:


I used SU Soft Sky cardstock and layered with patterned papers from the Webster's Pages In Love/Palm Beach/Game On Petite Papers pack.  My fun image is Vacation Time from Fine Arts by Robert Jackson.  You can find her in the Females section of Robert's store here.  I printed her on X-Press It and colored her with my Copics.  I sponged a few clouds in the background.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A double-loop bow of Pear Pizzazz seam binding finished my card.

Here is a close-up:


Thanks for stopping by again!  I always appreciate your visits and kind comments!

Have a great weekend!  See you soon!
