Sending You Sunshine

It's sketch time with Skipping Stones Design again! Chan Vuong, or November Sketch Artist, gave us another amazing sketch this week! I happened to see the card that one of my teammates made, and could not get it out of my head, so this sketch took me awhile.  I ended up inking up one of my favorite Skipping Stones Design sets, Uplifting.  And my gorgeous orange wrinkled ribbon is from Creative Impressions.  The kind folks over there supplied the Skipping Stones team with all sorts of fabulous goodies this month, and I am SO thankful!!!

Be sure to check out the Skipping Stones Design blog to see the original sketch, and to read all the details about playing along (you might win free stamps!).  And be sure to check out all the fabulousness:

I stopped by for the Blog Hop, but had to comment on this card. I love hot air balloons (although you'd never get me in one). What a great set and I LOVE how you used it with pattern paper. It is perfect for your friend's sketch challenge.

Your use of the orange ribbon is pure genius. Yes, genius. Reminds me of the flames that light and lift the balloon, but that was probably your intention.
