Tuesday Morning Sketches #128

Good Morning!  It's Tuesday... the kids went back to school yesterday, Hollyanne is back at dance tonight, life returns back to normal.  Yay!

This week's challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches has one of our favorite returning sponsors, Bugaboo, and it's the Judged Challenge.  This week's sketch was created by Marie and it's fun and fabulous.  As you know, with the Judged Challenge there is an added twist which will be to add a Vintage flair.

My card features Roly Poly Chef - Pie.  When I colored this little guy, I figured he looked a lot like Chef Boyardee, so I gave him an Italian base.  The background is a very pixelated old world map of Italy.  Even though it wasn't a great picture, I thought it looked cool!  I added some Desert Sand ink and Tea Dye distress ink and voila - I love this background.
