Blogger's Challenge #152: May Sketch Challenge


Our challenge for this Friday is to use the sketch above created by Lisa Somerville, our list mom.  Isn't it fun?  I was a little bit perplexed but only because I loved how my background turned out and didn't want to cover it up too much!

My background is so fun but simple!  I used the bicycle image from Pedaling Past and versamark ink to add some clear embossing powder and heated that up.  Then, I used the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz to create the background!  There is so much sparkle in real life!  I also added some Smooch Spritz to my brads. All of the images on this card are from the Pedaling Past set.

Be sure to see what the other players came up with using this sketch!  They should be fabulous!
