Sketch Saturday #322

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope ended the week on a good note and your weekend is off to a great start!  It's supposed to be a rainy weekend here, but we can't complain because we really need it.  Maybe we will get some breaks in the action so we can do some things outdoors.  Anyway, I am here now with my DT post for this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.  We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who are offering the lucky winner a generous $25 GC to the Simon Says Stamp store.

This week's fantastic sketch is by Debra:
Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Up & Away "Spread Your Wings and Fly" 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Love to Shop from All Dressed Up Stamps.  I colored these cute shopping friends with my Copics.  I created the sentiment on the computer.  A few Baker's Twine bows finished my simple card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Sketch Saturday blog and check out the fantastic creations from the rest of the Saturday Girls and our August Guest Designer, Angela!  We hope you will play along this week!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
