Here’s the Sketch:
Yet another fun sketch!

Here’s my card:


I used SU’s Vintage Leaves and the corresponding dies. I colored them in with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers with a red/orange/yellow ombre color combination. Then I blended the colors with an aqua-painter brush. I did some fussy cutting on the sentiment strip, the wavy dotted line and the “clouds”.

The sentiment is from PTI’s Scripted stamp set and the dotted line is from PTI’s Southwestern Style Stamp Set. I can’t remember the name of the embossing folder, but it’s made by Sizzix.
