Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good Morning! I am so happy that today I get combine forces with another challenge blog that I am privileged to be on the design team. Today MyGrafico Challenge Blog and Tuesday Morning Sketches will use the sketch posted on TMS with MyGrafico as the sponsor.

So here's my card. The image is actually a freebie at MyGrafico and it's just awesome. I love the simplicity and elegance to this image. I used a couple of decorative papers from a mat stack that I've had for a long time. I love black and white - again simplicity and elegance. Then I added a white panel that I embossed with the paisley CB embossing folder and black twill ribbon. I matted the focal image onto a piece of light blue cardstock just to set the image off just a bit. The sentiment is computer generated.

Now it's your turn. Here's the sketch:

Now for the fun. You have a chance to win on both blogs! I've been given an adorable set to award the winner on the TMS blog but Martha also has a super cute set to give a winner over there. So when you link up, be sure to link up in both places.

Have fun! I can't wait to see what you do with the sketch.
