Good Morning!  Happy Tuesday!  We have another fun sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this week is the Judged Challenge so we have twist, too.  This week we're adding a color combo:  Kraft, Black plus 1 other color.  We are sponsored this week by Designed2Delight.

I made my card with Loon and Cattails.

Fantastic masculine card, Melissa! I love the coloring on the duck. The gray shading around the oval is awesome. In the photo, it almost looks like the image is under a clear dome.

This is so beautiful. I love that image, but think this is the first time I've seen it used. Got to print one out and try it. Your coloring is amazing, a stunner of a manly card!
