A Sketch for you to Try :)

Good Morning! I promise I'm trying really hard to post more often! You should see the cabinets and the desk top in my garage though, it's so cool. I can't wait to get it into our scrapbook room and get organized. I will definitely share pics :)
Today Amy Rysavy has a new sketch posted and this card was made for her sketch. I don't know what it is about rain that I love so much, but I do. It rained all night last night and I just love it. Sara's softball games got canceled yesterday because of the weather. I think it's the renewal that rain brings especially in the spring. The plants and flowers all love getting the "real" water and not just water out of a watering can. I love how everything that's green brightens up just a bit after the rain.
Anyway......I bought this little Bitzy Bugz with the umbrella a while ago and this is the first time I've use it. I just love it though!
I started with a pink base and then used BoBunny Ella Dot paper (the back of it is the plaid) and the floral paper is from Anna Griffin. I colored with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits (big surprise there :) and I added Robin's Nest Dew Drops. I don't know what paper the pink polka dot is because I got it from my scraps and the yellow polka dot ribbon was from my scraps too! The "have a beautiful day" stamp is by AMuse Artstamps. Here is a link to the ATS blog so you can see some more examples of the fun sketch. Feel free to create your own card based on it and link it to the blog.
